Sisterhood Of The Traveling Runs

August 8, 2010

Running with other people in big cities is so fun! One of the best parts of being a traveling blogger. Today we had a fun group meet at 7:30 for ~6 miles around Central Parks main route. I had no trouble waking up, but am going to sleep hard tonight for sure.

Caronae and I are running buddies! We think this is our third NYC run :)


Jess, Tina + Roni (who I’ve also been on many runs with – Baltimore, Chicago!)


We stopped several times for water – so nice to have fountains scattered throughout!


We walked by this screen and suddenly we were on it!


Jess and I BOOKED on the last mile and clocked in at around an 8:05 pace – I got a second wind!

My fuel was a banana – half before, half after.

And now we’re headed to a farewell brunch by SOYJOY :)

Might see you sooner or later – but will see you when I see you!

Looks fun! I’ve never been running in NYC. But I love the sound of ample water stations.


2 Jessica @ How Sweet It Is August 8, 2010 at 9:10 am

So cool to run with other bloggers! I’d probably like to run if I could do that. :)

How great is it to not have to lug around water on a run?!?


9 caronae August 8, 2010 at 9:43 am

I love running with you when you’re here! None of my good friends run so it gets kinda lonely, lol. Love the pic of us on the screen, it’s so funny. I have one of you trying to move the little objects that’s cute.

Have fun at the brunch and see you next time you’re here!

The loop in Central Park is so great- the perfect length and terrain! Looks like a great time!

Looks like fun! I haven’t been to NYC yet but I think running would be such a great way to see the city. Enjoy the brunch – I’m sure it will be spectacular, just like the other meals at BlogHer!

Blogger friend meet-ups have to be one of the best things about having a blog :) Looks like so much fun!


25 Sara August 8, 2010 at 11:53 am

Hi Kath! I’m not sure if you have already answered this question before…but I was just curious as to what running shoes you wear?

Looks like you’re having a blast in NYC-enjoy!! :)


26 Kath August 8, 2010 at 1:48 pm

This is them:
Asiacs. Not sure of the exact model – will have to check

28 Brianne ( August 8, 2010 at 12:30 pm

This blog just inspired me to get my butt to NY and run through Central Park! I live so close to the city but never go…thanks for posting these pictures :) I bet it would be AMAZING to try it once the weather is cooler and the humidity goes away, cant wait.


29 Lisa @ Early Morning Run August 8, 2010 at 12:31 pm

I love running in Central Park – my favorite place to run by far. Glad you guys were able to get a group run in while you were in town!


30 Sarah August 8, 2010 at 12:47 pm

Okay, it’s official. Next break I get from school I’m going to NYC! You’ve convinced me! :)


31 Cynthia (It All Changes) August 8, 2010 at 2:57 pm

One of my fitness bucket list items is to run in NYC. How fun that you did it with a bunch of my favorite bloggers.


32 Hannah August 8, 2010 at 11:31 pm

I am SO GLAD you were talking about exercise here. Maybe it’s different in America, but in Australia, “the runs” refers to, erm, digestive-toilet issues, shall we say…
