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.

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!

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!! :)

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.

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!

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

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.

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…
