The Susan G. Komen breast cancer walk was happening, so I watched for a bit and clapped and teared up every friggin’ time I saw someone with a “survivor” label. That stuff makes me sob.
Yay!!! Loved this.
I ran mostly on the Bridle Path today, which was nice and shady.
This is the Bridle Path. It's more exciting when I'm running on it with the Sweat Squad.
The run was uneventful and I wrapped it up with some tricep dips (100 of those bad boys) on a bench at Engineer’s Gate.
Something I love doing: reading the dedication plates on the benches. I found a good one today!
THIS GUY WAS OBVIOUSLY A RUNNER!
Next time you’re in Central Park, check out the benches everywhere. The little engraved name plates are cute and most of them are really romantic.
In other news, I looked down at my feet as I tricep dipped and realized I never removed my D-Tag after yesterday’s race.
These are my shoes. They are Brooks Adrenalines. I love them.
I used to keep my D-Tags on forever after races. I don’t do that anymore.
I got my run out of the way early and then spent the rest of my morning being productive.
That meant another cold shower (seriously, WTF apartment?), foam rolling, doing dishes, sending emails and making lists.
Then it was time to relax!
That boyfriend I mentioned earlier suggested going downtown to check out the San Gennaro Festival in Little Italy, so that’s exactly what we did.
We started our journey in Union Square, where I hit up Lululemon and finally bought my Race Day top.
Then we walked south, eventually hitting Washington Square Park, where I did some dancing.
You can't see my legs, but they are doing a flawless split leap. Just imagine it. It's happening.
Yes, I took dance lessons for 18 years. I think it shows.
The San Gennaro Festival, which I went to last year as well, was intense.
Not crowded at all.
Lots of people. Lots of fried food. Lots of people waddling around.
We also went to the Burton store, and I got really excited about ski season being just a few weeks…OK, maybe months…away.
Someone please loan me several hundred dollars so I can purchase this outfit. Thank you.
Now I’m back home, wearing pajamas and a huge sweatshirt and I’m ready to finally watch Spirit of the Marathon.
Or more “Modern Family.”
This weekend was an ideal mix between fun, relaxation and productivity. And the weather was perfect the entire time.
Hamptons Marathon, are you getting ready for me? Because I’m coming for you in a few days, and I’m planning to crush you. So watch your back.
I’D LOVE TO KNOW: How was your weekend?
