This morning (well it was almost afternoon by the time I left) I headed out for an 18km run. Just your average Sunday, at least your average Sunday if you’re doing a 1/2 marathon in a few weeks time! Yes tis true, 3 weeks today I am doing the New York CIty Half.
I ran South along the Hudson, my favorite place to run. Firstly because it’s flat and secondly as there’s so much to see. It fascinates me that this town is so small in the physical sense, that half way through my run I had reached the bottom of the Island and was having to elbow out tourists. To celebrate the half way mark and try to fit in I stopped briefly and took a few pictures. And yes, the suns out today, loving an increasingly blue sky day.
Next stops today are a well deserved massage and much needed manicure. Awesome way to spend a Sunday on any side.
So if you haven’t figured it out yet, the weather has officially (rather quickly) changed - Fall (Autumn) is here in earnest. I’ve actually decided I don’t mind it being cold, as long as it’s not raining or windy. In fact, when I was running today along the Hudson, I was totally happy with Fall, I’m sure you’ll understand when you look at these pics. So pretty, great temperature for running and I didn’t have to get up at the crack of dawn to make it so. I actually did the longest run I have since moving here - a huge 15km - OK not that huge when most people out running are doing the marathon soon!
Right now there are signs in our elevators forbidding us from watching the 4th of July fireworks tonight on the rooftop. Big mistake, as we didn’t even know we had access to the rooftop. And now I understand. We have the most ridiculous, amazing view of NYC on all four sides, I mean who needs the Empire States building when you have 1 Columbus?!
