The official exercise history of Amos Bloomberg
Recreational running and biking while enjoying the scenery is my preferred style. I never enjoyed running at all until my 30's. Here are a few races I have enjoyed participating in.
Harry Chapin 10k Run Against Hunger
The Bloomberg family, particularly my dad, has been running in this local Croton-on-Hudson race, on-and-off, for as long as I can remember. It's a tough 10k race with many hills. The course passes over the beautiful New Croton Dam and surrounding area.
Despite being a terrible swimmer, a mediocre runner and bicyclist, and someone who generally does not wear speedos in public, I competed in triathlons for several years Triathlons can be brutal to a normal person, but are a nice test of endurance.
2012 Black Bear Sprint Triathlon
The Black Bear triathlon has a beautiful course through hills and forests around Beltzville State Park, PA. While it is a grueling race, it's a breathtaking place to be out of breath.

2011 NYC Triathlon
My timer chip fell off somewhere during the race, so I have no timed results. I nearly passed out at the end. The New York City triathlon has a swim segment through the Hudson River next to the city, which is one of the most putrid places I've ever been in my life - you can smell an indescribable stench underwater.
There are others for which I cannot find records.
