It’s been a whole since I posted! I did my scheduled 8 miler on Saturday and it went pretty well! I felt strong and happy when I was done. It was my birthday on Saturday too so I pent the day running around and getting ready. I went to the empire hotel rooftop and was expecting about 15 people! Excited! Although only 5 ppl showed up. I learned two things. 1-don’t make big plans for your bday bc then you get hurt when ppl don’t show up 2-people can be very selfish. One of the things I don’t like about NYC is it seems like so many people are selfish, unreliable and can be über divaish. Sigh. Sunday my mother arrived and we spent the day today walking around NYC. We started at the statue of liberty and Ellis island. We then got some lunch in the area (financial district/bowling green) then took the train to grand central. We spent time walking around grand central, 5th avenue, Bryant park and of course times square. We also saw the Rockefeller center and where they film the today show. We had dinner at the hard rock cafe in times square after seeing the “naked cowboys” and some street dancers. All in all a good day. Hoping I get some better sleep tonight (gave up my bed for my mom) and can start tomorrow morning with a run!
