Tinkering with a loop using the new ped walkways on the Goethals & Bayonne Bridges.
Not easy...had to get around Newark Airport & cross the Passaic into Jersey City.
Got it done! Neighborhoods weren't spectacular, but I survived.#GVRAT1000K #StatenIand #NY #NJ pic.twitter.com/kEQeqJtpoj
A Staten Island triathlete and endurance coach ventures into the ultramarathon realm where there are seemingly no limits to human endurance. In 2013, he successfully finished the Grand Slam of Ultrarunning (picture of 2013 Grand Slam finishers above; I'm second from right), becoming only the 282nd person (since its beginnings in 1986) and only the fourth New Yorker to finish four of the oldest and most prestigious 100 mile ultramarathons in the U.S. in only 10 weeks.

Well! The 1st crazy wk done! Dragged my 50 yr old corpse through 66.8mi during the 1st wk of the #GVRAT1000K.— Coach Iron Pete Triathlon Endurance (@ironpete_ultra) May 8, 2020
I give myself an A-. Yeah, I'm shameless that way.
2nd wk? More adaptation. After 4 wks, there's no stopping me!
Honored to join you lunatics in this! #statenisland pic.twitter.com/RJtmnQTJZK

So a friend threw this virtual race my way. This is modeled from the Last Great Vol State race, the summer race across TN.#Running 1000K, 3 months, $60. They have a virtual map to chart progress.— Coach Iron Pete Triathlon Endurance (@ironpete_ultra) April 27, 2020
Who will join me in this craziness?#ultrarunning https://t.co/ThkZFzJ5bs pic.twitter.com/8qU5ZXlQGk

The trick to having a productive day is to have a very productive 1st hour. The rest of the day will then be fine. I'll tell you what to do in order to ensure a productive 1st hour.https://t.co/5LGmLYilmt #sundaythought #sundaymotivation #statenisland #ny #sundayvibes pic.twitter.com/c9CQ3VAYHc— Coach Iron Pete Triathlon Endurance (@ironpete_ultra) April 26, 2020
How to get motivated...do or at least start one of your key tasks in the 1st hour of your day.
This gives the day a sense of purpose that you can carry through to the rest of the day.
A vid on this soon; it is 1 of the most important things to do.

Just a mention that #Ironman VR2 will be starting tomorrow at 6GMT, or 2PM EDT and ending Sunday. It is Oly Distance, with a 3k run, a 40k bike, and a 10k run.— Coach Iron Pete Triathlon Endurance (@ironpete_ultra) April 9, 2020
It's good way to get motivated again, if your training dropped off.#triathlon #statenislandhttps://t.co/bD0ufl4KbI pic.twitter.com/DqSgKRrecq
