The Summer of Jeff

Astoria to the George Washington Bridge

Posted in running by Jeff on April 19, 2010

I’ve been running with a Garmin Forerunner 305 for the last several months, but I just discovered the Garmin Connect feature, which allows me to create cool maps like this that show where I ran.

This morning, I ran 22 miles, starting in Astoria, over the Triboro bridge to Randall’s Island, then into the city via the 102nd St. pedestrian bridge. I cut across Manhattan to Riverside Drive, then headed up Riverside to Washington Heights. Finding the access ramp to the pedestrian/bike path over the bridge was a challenge–some online sources say access is at 178th and Ft. Washington, but it is actually two blocks further west, at 178th and Cabrini, on the south side of 178th.

I zigzagged through Harlem to get back to the Triboro, then took the long route around Randall’s island to round the route up to an even 22 miles.
