Armory 800m 2017

 

This is a very late post. Life has a way of moving very fast leaving things undone if not done early enough. This is especially the case if you’re a entrepreneur working on many different tasks on the edge pioneering ways without any guidelines to assist the process. Oh well! This is what makes life fun if you’re following your passion. Anyways, my first ever indoor race was at the Armory taking part with Team Arete. I competed in the 800m off of very little training – with a road mile race on Turkey day a few weeks prior.  I posted the race video on my youtube channel:

I came in second in the heat and ninth over all with a time of 2:03.10. I have built much since then and now looking forward to my next race. Many adventures and experiences in the city of NY.  Like running to Rockefeller center at 2am in the morning the night after the race to see the Christmas tree lights only to find out they have hours of operation. LOL Fun times indeed!

I’ll let some pictures I took during this trip do the rest of the talking:

 

 

Until next time….

About Alexander

My passion in life is to live free and to learn; thus, I approach life living in the moment and enjoying the ride. Not to say I don’t get caught up with goals from time to time as applying a strategy for our future is vital, yet I constantly strive to detach from any expectations as the future is unknown and being built by the present. My present strategy is to live an impeccable life of an elite runner and pursue high levels of fitness. What I have learned in my life through sport is that it is very easy to get caught up on the goal. It wasn’t until recently that I developed sufficient enough wisdom to truly realize the destructive manner in which I approached sports which caused all types of injuries. Having to coach myself, I had to learn to temper this and find a balance through my training regimens lest I end up regularly damaged physically, mentally, emotionally and, deep down inside, spiritually. Once I came to terms with my destructive behavior I found the peace and calmness I was always searching for. I still have my ups and downs, as we all do, but instead of fighting the down portions of my life I search for understanding like a soul surfer experiences the troughs of waves - feeling for a way to get back up.
