I had to visit mom today, and working on Randall's Island South. You got to invite me for long runs, I will try to be quiet :)
It´s when you are quiet that it gets boring...
Usually it's around 6 AM during Rogaines.
Avoid any pavement runs at all costs. Find good trail/grass routes. This may help with preventing injuries and damage to feet and knees.
Treadmill runs on good springy machines may be ok substitution during winter but they are definitely even more boring unless you run with a map in a hand.
BTW, I don't believe Grisha may be silent for more than 10 minutes :)
