Nike Run Hit Wonder

POST #    1808

Last night was the Nike Run Hit Wonder race in Central Park, which I headed over to check out. I'm sure you're thinking, "wait, you went to run?!?" No, no. Moral support and to check out the scene. The 5 mile run featured warm up music by The Donnas, and music along the course by Chingy, Nina Sky, the Fountains of Wayne, and Z-Trip. Joan Jett was the post race performer, which is actually the only musical act I saw.

I really wanted to check out Z-Trip, but he was all the way at the bottom of the course and I probably would have missed him had I gone to check him out. It's almost as if I had to run to go listen to him spin. So unreasonable.

Z-trip was good. He was spinning a Pink Floyd remix when I passed.

I wimped out b/c of the heat. Too many sweaty people. Was it crowded?

Pretty crowded, but much better organized than last year. Heat was a b*tch, but not as bad as Monday or Tuesday.

Have moved to Philly since last year's race, but had such a great time that I came up for it again last night. So much fun!

you should run and then you could use all of your sneakers more.

it didn't seem crowded at the finish area or in front of the stage when joan jett was performing. and it was nowhere close to the heat/humidity earlier this week.

yp, i laugh at you. ha ha ha.

All of those people staring at the stage with the same shirts on looks kinda cult-like. Neat.

Great pics, Tien. I met Joan Jett at a benefit she was doing for autism once and she was really cool.
Love checking out your site from time to time... here's what I'm up to:
