Well, I did it: I ran the 12 miles I was planning to run.
But let me tell you, at no point was it easy.
Maybe it’s because I didn’t sleep much last night, and it’s most certainly because I didn’t fuel properly this morning. But I did it. And now it’s done.
My route of choice was…random. I left my apartment, cut through Central Park to get to the West Side Highway, then ran all the way down the west side.
But the route is better described through photos. And since I stopped to stretch and catch my breath quite often, I was able to take plenty of pictures. Enjoy!
By the end, I was totally beat. Though after a blissfully hot shower, I’m ready to lay down for a bit then get out of the city for the weekend.
TELL ME: What are your weekend plans?
how do you run with your camera???
Oh I don’t! I run with my iPhone, and use that to take photos and play music.
The picture of the Intrepid made me think of my first car, the red Dodge Intrepid, and me being the only one with a license summer after sophomore year. Boy did we get into trouble! Haha. Great job on the run, hope you’re having a fun weekend!
I love the views you get to see when you run in NYC! 🙂
awesome run!! Love all the pics. Makes me wish I lived in NYC so I could run that route!
great job getting the 12 in. I would love to run in NYC… not many good sites in Wisconsin in February. beautiful pictures!
Awesome route! I never did a long run that way, it is a great idea. I used to live in one of those Trump buildings. Was so convenient for a beginning runner. Glad you got it done and it sounds like you did great despite the lack of sleep/fuel!
Ahhh I’m always so jealous of your routes – even if they are tough! 🙂
My plan for the weekend is to run 10 miles (check), catch up on DVR’d shows, cook in tonight, practice yoga at least once, and get 8 hours of sleep each day! 🙂
How was it getting to the west side? I always thought about running over there when I was training for the marathon, but always gave up on trying to come up with a way to avoid the crowds in Midtown.
I actually love weaving through crowds in NYC as it makes me feel pretty bad***. 🙂
