On Thursday morning, I got to run in Central Park! I ran in Central Park a couple years ago and was happy to have the opportunity to do it again!
It did require getting up in the darkness of the morning... but it was worth it. I'll sleep when I'm dead!
Our hotel was only a couple blocks from the park, so I walked to the park for a warm up and then started running.
Of course, even though it was only 6:15 and still dark out, the park was full of runners and cyclists. It was very safe. I tried to do a huge loop around the park, sticking to West Drive, Center Drive and East Drive.
I looped the park before I hit my goal of 8 miles, so I ran partway around the reservoir. By then, it was getting light out.
I was tired and didn't feel wonderful from the three glasses of wine I had the night before, but I was thankful to be running in such an iconic place!
Ya gotta LIVE LIFE people!
Tell me about some of the iconic places you have run! Okay just off the top of my head I can tell you I have run in Central Park, along the rim of the Grand Canyon, down Lombard Street in San Francisco... hmmm that's all I can think of right now!
