Weekend Highlight Race: NYC Pizza Run

Okay yes, we had some members do amazing things this weekend—Len Lopate ran 50 miles and a few BTCers conquered the new Syracuse 70.3. But instead of boring you with the details of real athletic accomplishments, we’ll focus for a moment on Jonathan Blyer, who took 2nd in the NYC Pizza Run in Tompkins Square Park yesterday. With a winning combination of fast legs (averaging 6:00/mile) and a hunger for life, Blyer sped around the 2.25-mile course, stopping for 3 slices of pizza along the way.

After scoping out the "competition," Blyer decides the front row is where he belongs.
