Yesterday started with a group run along the Hudson River and Westside Highway with the Brooks Ambassador bloggers and the Brooks design/pr/awesome team. See the guy in the red? He just ran a 1/2 marathon in 68 minutes. 68 minutes.
Running around NYC definitely reminded me of the year I did the NYCM and I loved every step.
We did about 7.2 miles and then rushed back to the hotel to get ready for brunch.
Bloggers in attendence: Jessica, Anne, Ashley, Toni, Jess and Jenn. In just the short time we had together I became really close with these girls (especially over our 3 hour dinner last night). I love it when that happens.
We went to Sarahbeth’s and oh my goodness. It was once again confirmed to me that brunch is the best meal of the day. We started with muffins and fruit and then I had an english muffin topped with ham, spinach and eggs. The tomatoes were actually perfect and I loved the potatoes with vegetables.
We got to ask the product design managers (for the apparel and shoes) any questions that we had. I love hearing about all of the details that go into each item that they make. They are all runners and their goal is to make our clothing and shoes to be as comfortable, functional and stylish as possible so that we can RUN HAPPY:)
I felt guilty for going to this toy store without Brooke but I WILL be bringing her back here with me someday.
Both of these statues were made completely with Legos.
We played around on the ginormous piano and I rocked out Mary Had A Little Lamb.
A trip to the city wouldn’t be complete without a stop at Dylan’s Candy Bar.
5 lb gummy bear… why not?
A candy robe. How did I pass up buying this beauty?
And a quick stop at me and Catie’s favorite bagel shop.
Finished off with a long walk around Central Park with an awesome umbrella and an awesome conversation.
