I have always had a bad time running home from the Williamsburg Bridge. Getting there from East River is nice and easy and the Bridge itself if great. But I have often tried to find a way other then Bedford and Lafayatte Avenues to get me back to Grand Army Plaza. I know them because I run the NYC Marathon on but they are not happy running places on any other morning.
But my friend Brooklyn Running showed it to me, and the map I embedded below is his map. The answer it Kent Ave to Flushing Ave.
It was a great run. The light rain held off till I got to the Williamsburg Br and stopped when I reached Brooklyn and then the sleet started with a quarter mile to get home.
One little hiccup. I was running on the sidewalk along Flatbush Ave. and found it blocked by parked cars. Yes, the sidewalk, I am not even talking about a car blocking a recreation, but the sidewalk.) As is my habit (my joy, my outlet, my vigilantism) I ran a little extra close to the vehicle, so I could fold in the mirror
It looked like it would fold in, but not so much. I mighta broke the mirror, who cares there was a perfectly nice parking lot across the street. However, now that it is the next day I do not think I permanently damaged my writs and/or arm, but that was one serious wack.
