Somebody call my 6th grade gym teacher who put me in remedial gym for being a terrible athlete, because today I got to host a #ViewFromMyRun RUN—based on my Instagram drawing project—with New York Road Runners. And it was so much fun! We ran a snowy 2 miles in Central Park and stopped to take photos at Bethesda Fountain. Then we ran back to the NYRR Run Center where I led a mini art class based on my own process. There were some reluctant artists who didn't love their pieces but they pushed through to the finish, just like in running. That's what this project is all about!
I shared my Instagram project, #ViewFromMyRun, with my new friends at New York Road Runners to celebrate the Bronx 10M. My prints were on display at their RunHUB for a few weeks and we raised over $1400 for Team for Kids and Lulu & Leo Fund through my pop-up art sale!
#ViewFromMyRun is a series where I draw something I see on my run, in the same amount of time as the run. Each piece is stamped with the time & distance.
