Saturday Fun: Let’s pretend that I wasn’t too busy eating .99 pizza and running around town to blog about Saturday on Saturday….plus, the internet wasn’t easy to get on where I was staying….I missed you guys!
We tried 6 different pizza places while we were in town. They were all incredible and that thin crispy crust with greasy cheese will always remind me how good life really is.
On Saturday I did a quick shake out run in front of the camera until my cousin could get a picture of me instead of the three miler I was supposed to do. Little did I know that the park portion of the race course was entirely uphill for miles upon miles and somehow I missed out on the downhill portion of those rolling hills.
Central Park is ridiculously awesome….. PS I didn’t take my real camera (I didn’t need one more thing to attempt not to lose) and so all of the photos are from my iphone…not bad for a phone camera right?
After I tried a NY bagel I regretted my obsession with eating pancakes for the first two mornings. Not that I wouldn’t have gotten these chocolate chip pancakes but instead I would have ordered these pancakes with a side of three bagels.
We found Dean and Deluca’s (I feel like I am one step closer to meeting Felicity now) and my cousin and I were mad at our stomach because we couldn’t fit anything else in because we were so full after breakfast.
You know that rumor about self-tanner leaving lines and smudges on your skin…well, it is true…my neck is a living testament of that.
Full stomach’s didn’t stop us from spending 10 minutes drooling over everything.
I can’t believe how truly incredible New Yorkers are…….I met 14 of my new bestest friends. I vote we all (all of you reading this included) choose a place to live (ahem…NY) and buy a neighborhood and all be next door neighbors. We could build a 16 Handles to be in the center of our neighborhood and meet before and after (for our fuel of course) we go on our daily group runs with our dogs (ahem…Billy).
We took over 16 Handles birthday party room that was located in the back of the store and it was perfect for us to sit in a circle and get to know each other.
I had every flavor of yogurt, clearly not enough sprinkles and the best little cake bite thingees in the whole wide world. Does anyone know what those multi-colored cake things are called and where I can get them within 50 miles of my home? I might be able to convince Billy to drive 100 miles to get them but that might be pushing my luck.
My cousin and I also met up with some friends from Utah that now live in NY for some pizza. My hair washing policy does not change even when I change time zones.
We ended the night sleeping at HEATHER’s house (the one in the middle) and had a blast watching movies and talking about everything. Go wish Catie (on the right) a happy birthday….she turned 25 on SUNDAY and we were lucky enough to steal her away on her bday weekend;)
I don’t know if I had enough delicious food this past weekend or not;) It is going to be a little hard going back to broccoli, cereal and eggs.
I got home yesterday at about 4 and spent 72 minutes telling Billy every little detail of the weekend. We made dinner, watched tv and were in bed by 8.
Nov. 7-Nov.14 is officially catch up on sleep week, feel free to join me.
Do you do a shake out run the day before a marathon/half-marathon?
-I thought I was going to before NYCM but I didn’t, I never have before my other races either.
What is your favorite cheap, fast-foodish, greasy food?
-Not gonna lie, the cheap street pizza was really good.
Thin crust or thick crust?
-Thin crust… allows for maximum topping eating.
My sister and I are conducting a very important survey. We need your help to solve a conflict that we are having with each other.
Anchovies: LOVE THEM, HATE THEM or NEVER TRIED THEM?
