On Thursday, June 4, the Young Lawyers Committee held the First Run of the AABANY Running Club from Brookfield Place through Battery Park, along the scenic Hudson River. After meeting at Hudson Eats in Brookfield Place, runners shared their motivation, everything from marathon-training to fitting back into their own clothes. Braving the mild weather were:

  • Fearless leader Gabriel Arce-Yee, who led the run
  • David Sohn
  • YuJin Hong
  • David Mou
  • Blaise Chow
  • Tansy Woan
  • Amelia Wong
  • Tiffany Tsai
  • Julie Zong
  • Simone Nguyen
  • Tom Greenberg

We commend each and every person who made it out yesterday and gave their running shoes a reason for being. A smaller faction broke off for a mini-yoga lesson. Several members stayed and rewarded their run with barbecue. The group would have met for a post-run photograph, but they worked too hard during their workout to show that off. Thanks to Young Lawyers Co-Chairs David Sohn, Amy Ngai, and Gabriel Arce-Yee for organizing this revival of the Running Club. Special thanks to Co-Chair Amy who graciously guarded our belongings as well as organized.
