ORIGINAL NEW YORK HARRIERS RECALL TEAM'S BEGINNINGS AHEAD OF 30TH ANNIVERSARY

"The Harriers were formed as a rebellion against the tyranny of strict training schedules, required workouts, and anti-beer-drinking zealotry." So begins the 1998 10th anniversary edition of the Harrier newsletter. Former Harriers President and member since 1993, Douglas Hegley, fondly recalls the printed Harrier Herald -- which he worked on for years -- as a labor of love. "We used to gather at a bar to fold, address, and stamp these things, then stagger to the nearest mailbox to send them out."

NYC MARATHON RECAP

The 2017 season drew to a close in November with The Big One, the race so many had been training for over the past months and miles.

BRONX 10-MILER RECAP

It was a hot and steamy day for the Bronx Ten Miler -- the weather, sure, but also the blazing heat of the Harriers speeding along through the Bronx.  The course is an out-and-back, so as runners zipped along the Grand Concourse there were, at certain points, Hs on both sides, and some "Go Harriers!" yells across the divide.  Cold towels waiting in ice were a welcome gift at the finish line!

SHAT 2017 - Summer High Altitude Training

It's the middle of July and I can't believe how fast a year flew by. My bestie and fellow Harrier Susan and I touch down in Denver for SHAT Chapter 2! This edition takes place in amazing Breckinridge and with 20 more teammates and friends than last year. It soon turns out to be absolutely epic and as I like to say "The more, the Harrier"! During a fun van ride with a cool crew, we learned that Dan can hold his breath the longest: almost the entire tunnel length. Maybe this is worth a special kudos or award one day?
