Rockstars

 

 

ALEX HONNOLD IN “FREE SOLO” JOYOUS ATOP EL CAPITAN AFTER ASCENT

 
In January of 2015, the world watched as two rock climbers became front page news. Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson inched their way up the 3000 ft. Dawn Wall of El Capitan in Yosemite National Park, free-climbing its virtually sheer granite face for the first time in history. Using ropes only for safety, not for assistance, the two spent 19 days on the Dawn Wall in what many considered to be the greatest climb of all time.

A couple years later in June of 2017, world-renowned rock climber Alex Honnold free-soloed the Freerider route of El Capitan in a continuous ascent of 3 hours and 56 minutes — unobserved other than a film crew trailing him as he scaled the wall with no ropes at all. His death-defying climb is now considered one of greatest feats in the history of sport.

Two new films, The Dawn Wall and Free Solo document the pursuit of these climbs, the accomplishment of these unimaginable feats, and the unrelenting dedication and perseverance of their climbers. Read More

NYC 26.2

 

 
On Sunday, more than 50,000 runners will line up at the start of the 2018 New York City Marathon. For many it will be their first. No doubt they will spend Saturday night wondering what made them think this was a good idea, as a combination of excitement and panic make sleep impossible. I remember the pre-race jitters well, unable to imagine how I was actually going to run those 26.2 miles. 

The NYC Marathon is an experience like no other. You are a rockstar for a day. The streets are lined with people cheering you on. For the thousands of visitors who have traveled here to run the Marathon, it’s the ultimate sightseeing trip. Even for us born and bred New Yorkers, you see the city in a whole new light. Bridges are behemoths – the Queensboro, monstrous. 

A friend who is running for the first time asked for a few tips. He told me he was worried he had not trained enough. Here is what I told him… Read More
