Weekly Wrap for 2.12.18-2.24.18 – New York, New York….


Another travel work week but at least, I didn’t have to drive and it wasn’t as cold and snowy as Buffalo.  And the best part, there are lighted paths to run.

Yes, “New York, New York. It’s a wonderful town…”

Last week – 

  • Monday – Off to NYC for work and set up in Queens.  As soon as I was done and back in Manhattan, I headed to the East River to do some running.

5.5 miles – 4 of which were to and from the river on the crowded streets of the city

  • Tuesday – As soon as I got back to Manhattan after work in Queens, I changed my clothes and took off to run. This time it was along the Hudson River. I got a late start and missed the sunset but still a decent run away from home.

4 miles (2 miles to and from the river). Chillier than Monday so I added gloves, vest & beanie but not complaining – warmer than last week.

  • Wednesday –  Of course, I could not be in NYC and not run in Central Park. To save time (and my legs), I took the subway to Columbus Circle and ran around the park. I was really dragging but got in my steps by walking back to my hotel.

so tired but got 2.5 miles in (barely)

  • Thursday – Unfortunately, I had to stay in the hotel to do a webinar and could not get out to run or walk.  Instead, I met with a Skirt Sports ambassador.  We chatted and had drinks.  Hopefully the next time I come to NYC, we can meet in Central Park to run together.

after almost 2 hours, we felt like we had know each other for years…or maybe it was the 2 glasses of wine

  • Friday – Another scheduled rest day since I had to take the train home after work. Totally exhausted because I get up every morning at 5:30 am and stay up late watching the Olympics. Plus even if I don’t run, I walk 5 miles (train, subway, work, lunch) each day.
  • Saturday – Finally reunited with my running friends for an early morning run. I really didn’t feel like getting up to run but as usual, I was glad that I did.  I ran 2 miles at home and then drove with Barbara to meet the others. I ran with Barbara for about 3 miles but decided to let her go ahead because she was running faster than I wanted to.  So I ran the remaining 5ish by myself.  Afterwards, we all met for breakfast.

lots of sunshine, clear path in one direction on the Nisky Bike Path

  • Sunday – The last Winter Series race was scheduled for today. Even though, I ran yesterday, I couldn’t turn down a free race. I woke up to snow which did make me nervous but Barbara and I decided to go anyway. I didn’t plan to race and the wind was insane.  The good news – I met a fellow Skirt Sports ambassador and won my age group.  Yup, another good day for this runner.

4.5 miles and a course PR

  1. I’m glad you had some great runs in while you were in the city. So jealous! Congrats on your age group award. I certainly would not turn down a free race. How fun to meet two SS ambassadors in one week! Thanks for linking!

  2. Looks like you had some great scenery on your runs this week! Can I ask what you do that you get to do so much traveling for work? I don’t ever get to go anywhere!
