Weekly Wrap for 3.5.18-3.11.18: Back in the Big Apple


New York, New York. It’s my kind of town…

Lots of lights and places to run…

Last week – 

  • Monday – Again I was scheduled to work in Queens. So after I set up and got back to Manhattan, I went for a short run.  I decided to run on the High Line because I actually had enough daylight before it closed.

A short run because I had tickets for a pro tennis tournament in Madison Square Garden.

8 players played 10 pt tie breakers and the winner took all in the end. Pretty fun.

  • Tuesday – Today after work, I wanted to get one more run in before the storm so I ran along the Hudson River until it got dark and then through the city.

I ran in the opposite direction (uptown)

  • Wednesday – My new Skirt Sports ambassador buddy, Elizabeth, recommended that I attend this event with her.

the author is a runner herself.

But the event got cancelled due the snowstorm. I was totally bummed. So I made the best of the evening and took on a Broadway show.

I bought last row tix but because of the weather, there were a lot of no-shows so I was able to move down to the 3rd row. I even got a beach ball souvenir.

  • Thursday – Finally Elizabeth and I were supposed to run together.  But the weather again messed up our plans. Her Tuesday running class got rescheduled for today. So we planned to meet up the next I am here. and I took the subway to Central Park and ran solo.

More daylight and more runners in the park (many guys in shorts!?) I was more adventuresome and ran some different paths.

Afterward, I stumbled upon the Underground Market – amazing eateries near the Columbus Circle subway station.

  • Friday – No time to run since I had to take the time home after work.  I needed a rest anyway.
  • Saturday – Last long run before the big one. Because the paths at the Crossings were plowed last week, I encouraged the Wineglass ladies to join me for a run there. Jeri & Heidi ran/walked together and Christian & Sherry ran together.  Barbara was a good sport and ran 8 miles with me. Then we all met up for brunch.

cold and WINDY! I am so ready to leave this climate.

  • Sunday –  Rest and time to pack for my upcoming vacation!!!

This Coming Week

  • Monday  4 miles
  • Tuesday – 2 miles before tennis
  • Wednesday – rest day, fly to West Palm Beach, FL, drive to Delray Beach

  1. That’s great that you were able to move up to the third row for the show! I bet the weather played havoc with a lot of plans. A friend of mine had Hamilton tickets and then her train to New York was cancelled and she missed the show 😦

  2. I love how you always make the best of things! How fun that you got to see Escape to Margaritaville. Who knew that songs about drinking would evolve into such a big success for Jimmy Buffett?

  3. Wow you’ve had horrendous weather lately! Glad you were able to work around it and enjoyed a show in good seats! No running for me, as you know. I did some upper body work though so there’s that.

  4. I have never been on the Highline! I need to find it next time I go to NYC. This week’s snow missed up completely, which is good since I have to get in to the office. You’re lucky that path was plowed.

  5. Oh, it must have been beautiful to run on the High Line! I always love running in Central Park when I am in NYC. It’s just so perfect.

    Training is going well. I’m a little tired after Gate this past week, but today’s yoga class helped work out some kinks. I have one more big race of the season and then I don’t know what I’m going to do.

  6. The winter (and a back injury) have definitely been messing with my training a bit. We’ve had back to back snow storms this week which make it hard to run outside or drive to the gym. But hopefully spring will be here soon!


    • Yes I hope so too. But we have our third snowstorm going on right now.

      Hope your back gets better and you are back (pun) on track with your training.


    • You can’t control the weather. Fingers crossed about tomorrow’s flight and that I will see some sun in FL. At least it will be warmer than here in the afternoon (still 40s in the am there but NO SNOW.)

      • No snow will be nice. And 40s there is different from 40s here.

        I think you’ll be fine to fly tomorrow. And yes, that’s part of why we always leave some extra time, but I know that’s not easy for everyone.


        • We’ll see when the snow stops. if my flight is delayed, I will miss my connection. Sigh.

          I don’t have the time to leave early and come back late. I’m just glad to be away for a few days and running a half marathon.

  7. Now, that’s my kind of Broadway Play. ‘) Was the drink included? It’s awesome you were able to switch seats and get a beachball. Beautiful pictures this week of NYC. You definitely deserve some warm FL weather. I hope you have a wonderful trip visiting with your friends and running Brew 2 Brew. Thanks for linking!
