If you’re a marathon runner, you certainly earn your calories. And what better way to replace those expended as you pound the pavement approximately 52,400 times over the course of 26.2 miles than with hot slices of pizza pie? In preparation for the November 3rd run, New Balance has partnered with L’Industrie Pizzeria to create a pop-up pizza shop where runners can earn slices for their miles run. And you don’t actually have to run the marathon to dine. Runners can join New Balance’s “Miles for Pizza” challenge using the Strava App, and they can get one slice for every five miles run. Seeing as how the average New York Style pizza slice is about 200 calories, and it takes about 500 calories to run five miles, you’ll still be in the black. The bad news is if you want to down a whole pizza, you’ll have to run about four marathons. The NB Pizza Co. opens to hungry runners on October 11 at 47 East 34th St. and will stay open every weekend through the marathon.


We pride ourselves on being able to tackle problems and jigsaw puzzles like everyone else–from the edge pieces in. That’s a little more difficult when it comes to thousand piece adventures like the Moon puzzle you see here. In is out, out is in, and there’s an entire quadrant of almost fully gray pieces that depict the lunar surface, but all of that just adds to the productive difficulty you’ll experience when you’re assembling this jigsaw version of modern history. As they tell it, “July 16, 2019 marked the 50 year anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch – the historic mission to the Moon where Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first of humankind to set foot on the Moon. Our Moon puzzle celebrates this momentous achievement and will challenge and delight puzzle solvers everywhere.”
