As I’m not sure how much time I’ll have in front of the computer, or actually want in front of the computer I’d thought I’d do a little blogging before I leave for the Big Apple. Mmmm apples. Mmmm pizza. Mmmm New York food. (Queue Homer Simpson gurgling noise.)
First and foremost, I got a promotion at the J-O-B. I’m pretty stoked about it. It’s a bit more money and in the direction I’d like my career to go. As I don’t like to get too personal on the old blogosphere, I’ll just say that it’s a great step in the right direction.
Secondly, I’m going running while in New York. What did you think I’d take a break? Heck no. I want to keep up the running there because lord knows I’ll be eating like a mad woman. In my efforts to run while there I googled a local running group and emailed them. And low and behold they emailed me back and I’ll be running with them. How freakin’ cool is that? I love the running community. I’ll be sure to take some pics. I won’t be running in Central Park or anything because that would be very complicated logistically, but I will be running close to auntie’s house.
Lastly, I have been feeling very drained on my 10 milers. I asked Coach EK what that was all about. He and I discussed it and both feel it is due to non-running related stress. Now that I’ve got the job thing situated and get a little break before I officially start, I’m hoping that upon my return from New York I won’t feel so sluggish and sore after my long runs. We’ll see how it goes.
Until next time, keep runnin’ and smilin.
MMMM, eat some pizza for me! I'm so jealous!
Have a great trip! Running somewhere new is always a good mental break! And you'll even have new company on your runs! Congrats on the promotion! Yea for you!
I hope you have a great time here! Since your trip is revolving around food – hopefully the Union Square Farmers Market and Chelsea Market are on the list. Essex, Veselka, and Clinton Street Baking Co are some of my favs for brunch! Can't wait to read about your trip!
