I had one of the most enjoyable road runs of my life last Saturday. I was in New York and had some precious free time while traveling. So I loaded up with a little gear and warm clothes and started running. I had no major plan aside from spending a few hours running through New York. I knew that if I got tired I could buy something on the streets or catch the Metro back to my hotel. So at 10:45am I left my hotel in Brooklyn and took to the streets.
I ended up going over Brooklyn Bridge, around lower Manhattan, up Broadway, lunch in Times Square, through Central Park, down Park Place and 1st Avenue, and finally made my way back to the hotel. I stopped a couple times for the bathroom and food but just churned along having a great time! The mapmyrun app said 23.67 but with all the bobbing and weaving, it was probably a little more. All-in-all, the big apple ain't so bad.
