Bridging the Gap

 

Out of the Bars and Into the Night

Award-Winning VIDEO

Some only come out at night.

Some never stepped foot on a track.  
Some never defined themselves as athletes.

Yet we are all inspired by a common philosophy and by the idea of using the pavements of our urban wildlife as our playground.  From New York City to Moscow, from London to Zurich– we’re all inspired by each other.

We’re divided into five different race groups.  So we have the tortoises, hares, greyhounds, cheetahs and the elites.  So the idea is basically that no matter what level you are, there’s someone who’s always gonna be able to run with you.  Our thing is about encouraging people to run.

Running is the least important part of the running crew story.  It’s a way for friends to physically meet each other at least once a week.  The creativity and the idea of family that we’re trying to build, and community, is far more important.   

We find a lot of people who get into running suddenly find some crazy level of creativeness, because the wider-the-mind thing starts to change.  Running and creativity basically go hand in hand.

We made a short film.  We’re in the studio making music for our next big race; we’re gonna make our own Finish Line music and a mixtape for it, so we’re starting a record label as well.  We got an art exhibition planned for next year based on running.  

So we’re basically trying to make people understand that just because you’re being healthy and running and taking care of yourself doesn’t mean that the rest of your life stops.  You know, it’s all part of a lifestyle.

We are unified by a responsibility to make each other improve, in the pursuit of accomplishing the unthinkable.

These are the times when you share joy as much as you share pain, and you grow into a team together, inseparable.

 

Never stay stationary.  Get out and move; for yourself and for others.

  • Art Garfunkel on Paul Simon
    Telegraph Uk - I ask about the Beatles, specifically George, who felt his talents were overshadowed. “George came up to me at a party once and said “my Paul is to me what your Paul is to you.” He meant that psychologically they had the same effect on us. The Pauls sidelined us. I think George felt suppressed by Paul and I think that’s what he saw with me and […]
  • Places to visit before they go under water
    Eco Watch - Its not just low-lying island nations. “A recent study says we can expect the oceans to rise between 2.5 and 6.5 feet by 2100, enough to swamp many of the cities along the U.S. East Coast,” says National Geographic. “More dire estimates, including a complete meltdown of the Greenland ice sheet, push sea level rise to 23 feet, enough to submerge L […]

  • What the best teachers think hurt students
    Joseph Williams, Take Part -  Ask 1,000 education policy analysts why American students lag behind their global peers, and you’ll get at least 500 different answers—too much testing or not enough. Out-of-control homework levels or too little time hitting the books. Teachers who are either under constant administrative pressure or who have too much freedom at […]

    Terry Gross, NPR - Rachel Dissell, discovered that in her state, Ohio, thousands of rape kits, dating back to 1993, were being stored, untested, with no follow-up. Rapists who might've been convicted were free to assault other women. Dissell's investigation with her colleague Leila Atassi on sexual assaults and the backlog of rape kits led to a new […]

    Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify, or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them because they cha […]
