How far is 26.2 miles?

Had a terrible run yesterday in Central Park.  About 3 miles in I had this terrible side splitting pain like an alien was coming out of me!  The worst.  What’s more, someone told the NY gnat community that the weather is beautiful these days… so there were about 5 million gnats flying around in clusters.  Not pleasant.

So I did 6 miles, in pain, but it got me thinking – just how far is 26.2 freakin miles?  Here’s what I came up with:

1. 4 and 1/3 loops around Central Park.
2. From my friend Elliot’s home in New Jersey to his wife’s home in Long Island (I mapped this and the distance is almost exactly 26.2 miles… weird …)
3. From the 72nd Street Broadway Subway Station… to Rye Playland.

As a coworker recently said, “I can’t even remember the last time I put that many miles on MY CAR!!!!”
