Some call it street, urban or city running. We call it simply running. We can't run in mountain meadows, through ancient pines swaying from a breeze, around shimmering lakes. We live in the city. We at Gutterbound are built for you. Now take it to the streets.

First Neighborhood Finished

Rainy Days and Run Days Always Get Me Down Originally run on Oct. 2, 2012 Had a soggy slog through the dark streets Prospect Heights and Park Slope today. Puddles like land mines, only reveal themselves when it’s too late and a soaked shoe and mud-flecked leg bear the brunt of my decision to run...
Running in Park Slope

Running in Park Slope

Thoughts about running in Park Slope From 4th avenue to Prospect Park, from Flatbush all the way to Prospect avenue. I also counted Prospect Park as being part of this neighborhood for my purposes. It’s a very pretty neighborhood: tree-lined streets filled with stately Brownstones. It’s a classic Brooklyn neighborhood, and people who don’t visit...

Another Park Slope / Gowanus Run

Running blocks around Park Slope and Gowanus Been officially a month since I sprained my ATFL on my ankle, and it’s finally starting to fee strong again. It aches every now and then as if it’s tugging at me trying to get my attention, but I’m running with confidence. Lost some time, but it’s just...

Rainy Days, Nipple Chafing, and the Coolest Superfund Site in Brooklyn Run was originally on 9/26/12. 6.08 miles through Park Slope, Carroll Gardens and Gowanus. This is the third run since I sprained my ankle, and while I’ve lost some fitness, overall I feel like I’m 90% recovered. Lost 4 weeks and my plans got...

Running Brooklyn Stats: 2009 – 2011

During my downtime from a sprained ankle (thanks crazy Brooklyn potholes!), I decided to go back and count all the miles that I’ve ran in Brooklyn since 2009. I went back and forth on when I should officially starting counting my Brooklyn miles. Part of me wanted to start cleanly from late July in 2012...
Park Slope Run

Park Slope Run

Running around Park Slope Easy run of about 4.75 miles. I wanted to knock out some streets in my home base so I can start focusing on new areas. I want to at least cross off one neighborhood from my long list so I feel like progress is being made. And I might as well...
Lazy Man's Route

Lazy Man’s Route

Running around the new Barclays Center Easy run after Thursday’s long run. Trying to knock out some of the streets near home and slog steadily through the crazy town that is Flatbush and Atlantic — only to get crazier with Barclays Center to open in less than a month. Highlights: Best pun in a deli...
