Basketball at South Street Seaport

I was down at the South Street Seaport area over the weekend and saw that they were setting up a basketball court.

Not that they were going to play any games there, though. Instead, it seemed to be a combination of Verizon, the NBA, and the WNBA to publicize their products and to let some locals have some fun. It was around 12:30 or so when I first walked by and people were already lined up and waiting to join in.

There seemed to be some minor obstacles to perform. In honesty, I only saw one person do the process and that was when I was leaving the area. Basically, it was something like shoot a basket, dribble the ball around the cutout figures, pass a basketball to a holding area, and then shoot another basket. I have no idea why I remember those steps. Like I said, it was just one person doing it and that may have just been a staff member testing it out. But everyone else was patiently waiting their turn.

While I was wandering, I did get a nice elevated shot of the area. Everyone on the court in the below view is actually a staff member. Man, those people in line were very patient for such a hot day.

I saw the same sort of thing last year. I think that they actually had some WNBA players on hand at that event. I don’t know if they did at this one or not. It just didn’t interest me enough to wait around for who knows how long to find out.

    Firstly, well done on being freshly psersed! It was a great post .this is a great blog!Secondly, I’m not much help with the foot issue although I have experienced a similar thing myself, but after buying new shoes it went away after a couple of runs! You’re probably right about the trail to pavement transition. Great idea with the frozen massage!On a side note Stephanie I think the mileage depends on the runner. I’ve taken shoes in after 300 miles and the running store assistant looks at me like I bought them yesterday! I’m much closer to the 500 before I need to change them .which is good because it gives me longer to save that change!Happy memorial day! We’re off for a weekend away with lots of swimming planned (with the kids so more sliding and splashing than breaststroke!). Happy running!
