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.

Here is a plot of a few of our family members' performance from 2009 to 2017, the only years for which I have records: Bloomberg Family Performance in Recent Harry Chapin Runs Against Hunger.png


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.

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.

And more

There are others for which I cannot find records.
