Haven’t seen that in Central Park, nor Van Cortlandt.
It was great, though. Actually, at the 10k point of my run, I mixed tea with lemon lime Gatorade. It was quite good. The tea diluted Gatorade’s sugar.
Never seen that either.
Some teams even have aid stations set up for track workouts! This was at Jiao Tong University on Saturday:
Typically, in the U.S. we only wear team uniforms/singlets on race days.
We wear plenty of other team attire in the meantime, but Chinese runners seem to want to fly their flag on every run–or at least those in large public squares such as Century & Jiao Tong.
Man in glasses on right cracked me up. For a good 30 minutes or more he was explaining something at length to this small group around him–only 7-8 folks at times. All the while he wore a headset with microphone. His voice ranged out loudly, as folks listened intently from no more than ten feet away.
American coaches-mentors: Please grab your mics.
Lastly for now, there’s also a Vegan Runners team with 450 members!
