A friend of mine turned me on to an article running in The Gothamist today, titled “Pizza-Eating Foot Race Returns to Tompkins Square Park.” And she pointed out that the guy in the photo atop the article — who looks quite deranged as he attempts to inhale a slice of pizza, I might add — looked a lot like me.

Indeed, it was I. The article was about the return of the NYC Pizza Run, which I did last year in.  As my running blog entry on the 2013 running denotes, I came in sixth place that year. Its sister race, the NYC Cupcake Run, I also did last year — and came in second! But that’s beside the point.
