Running Update: 12.4.17-12.10.17 & Giveaway Winner


Last week – 

  • Monday – I was nearby for work so decided to run at The Crossings. I felt great but had to cut it short because it got too dark (and I didn’t have my knuckle lights with me.)

  • Tuesday – A long work day and a rest day after running 3 days in a row. Besides it was raining!!!
  • Wednesday – I took the train to Manhattan for work. After I went to and from Queens, I took the subway to Central Park to run in the evening. It was great to run with lights and others runners around.

about 2 miles through the park and 3 other stop & run miles around the city

I continued my run through the streets of NY looking at all the holiday lights. (Pictured below are Rockefeller Center, Saks & Fox News)

you can’t beat the sights and sounds of NYC at Christmastime

  • Thursday – I worked all day in Queens but still squeezed in a run along the Hudson in the evening.

again I combined a run (2 miles) and a stop & run tour of the city (1 mile)

Then I ran back to the hotel via Bryant Park.

  • Friday – Again I worked all day in Queens and then took the train home…no time to run today.
  • Saturday – No morning run with the Wineglass ladies.  Instead I had a hair appointment and in the evening we all ran the Albany Last Run, a 5k race through the lights in the park. As usual, it was a fun time even though it snowed before and during the race and we could barely run without slipping. (In fact I did fall crossing the finish line LOL)

Afterwards, we went back to Judy’s for food, drink and a lively book discussion. The book was A Beautiful Work in Progress by Mirna Valerio.

  • Sunday – Just a day to catch up on everything I’ve ignored.

  1. You fell crossing the finish line? Go big or go home! LOL. I’m glad you were not injured! I would adore running around NYC and seeing all the pretty holiday lights. Totally jealous. Thanks for linking!
