Weekly Run Down for 10.16.22-10.23.22: Travelling Week

Yup, on the road again.

The highlight of my week was going to NYC!

My least favorite part of the week was a work trip to Rochester, NY.

Oh, I also managed to squeeze in a 5k race on Saturday.

Last Week:

  • Sunday – I took the train down to NYC where I spent a lovely day.

I had lunch with some college friends and then we visited the Morgan Library.

We were all French majors so it was appropriate to see Le Petit Prince exhibit and most of us had also read The Personal Librarian.

Afterward I went to the top of Summit One for views of the city at sunset.

just breath taking

I ended the day in Bryant Park with Cari.

notice our healthy dinner

  • Monday – Rain was in the forecast but Cari and I crossed our fingers that we could get a dry run done in Central Park before she had to go to work.

and we did!!

It started to sprinkle but not enough to deter me from some more leave peeping miles in the park.

The sun peaked out by the time to head to my museum visits.

First a quick one to Cooper Hewitt (since it was on the way and free.)

Then on to the Jewish Museum (which surprisingly was free too). There was a special exhibit on the 60’s (and I’m old enough to remember them) among other things.

I took the subway back to my  hotel to check out.

My final stop was to another friend’s apartment before heading home.

  • Tuesday – Back to work. No time to run until after work.

I didn’t pay attention to the temps and I was quite chilly

  • Wednesday –  This afternoon I had to drive to Rochester for work (3 1/2 hours.) After checking into my hotel, I wanted to run on the Erie Canal trail before dark. I was staying a different hotel than I usually do so I asked the desk clerk where to go. She pointed out the trail and told me to park in the hospital parking lot.

Oh, it was COLD and raining so I think she thought I was nuts.

just drizzling most of the time but then it started to pour and I took cover in a nearby REI store (where I should have parked. lol)

I had to return to my hotel to change out of my wet clothes before heading out to dinner .

  • Thursday – On my way home from Rochester, I decided to squeeze on one more run. This time I headed to where I used to park (Schoen Place) to run on the Erie Canal..

It was dry but overcast and windy.

cold… but still so pretty

One last stop before leaving Rochester:

never too cold for Abbotts!!

Once home, I had to pick up my race packet and stop at Trader Joes (for flowers and everything pumpkin lol)

  • Friday – Rest Day!! No mah jongg due to COVID exposures but time to unpack, carb load and get together a #flatme.

  • SaturdaySummer Smith Memorial 5k. I was pooped from all the travel this week and wasn’t feeling the run. But as soon as I got there my spirits lifted.

There were some speeches, many raffle items, memorial balloon launch and tears by many (who knew Summer or anyone who died due to drug/alcohol addiction.)

perfect weather (except for the wind) and I managed to win my age group but didn’t win any of the raffle items

I never regret a race…but my legs were not happy adding more miles after.

it warmed up nicely and the wind died down

Finally got to celebrate my stepson’s birthday with a dinner out.

  • Sunday – I need to do some leaf peeping before it was past peak. But I need to get out early before the crowds hit.

  1. Look at all those beautiful fall colors! Glad you and Cari had a fun visit (and missed the rain). I can only imagine the hotel person’s thoughts when you asked about running in the rain, LOL.

  2. Your fall colors are spectacular! I just wish fall lasted longer. I hope you had/are having a fantastic hike today.

    Congrats on your AG win in yesterday’s race!

    It was quite chilly here earlier in the week, but warmed up nicely for the weekend.
