Day 4 in NYC – carrot juice, oatmeal, coffee, water. What’s up, Thursday morning?
During my lunch break I decided it was time to fiiinally see Central Park. It is easily one of the top 5 destinations on a New York trip, am I right? On a related side note, the AC system in our training room is broken. To combat the heat, the instructor (Mike) said we could wear whatever we want. Naturally, I took that to mean “gym clothes OK.” When Mike let us out for lunch, I walked outside and turned on my Garmin. It took about 1/2 a mile to locate satellites, and by that time I was almost to…
Radio City Music Hall
What actually goes on in there?
About a mile into the run I hit the southern tip of Central Park.
Goodbye Concrete Jungle, Hello Park Jungle
I felt like Mimi-Siku, but in reverse. And on a smaller scale.
Did you know that real-life Mimi-Siku (Sam Huntington) became friends with Macaulay Culkin in 7th grade – before J2J?
**just noticed that’s not in English, but I am blogging from my phone and don’t feel like changing it!**
Scenes from the park:
The run was half exercise, half sightseeing. Aaaand, POSE.
Metropolitan Museum of Art, aka where a taxi door practically took me out.
Running to the Subway to make it back to class on time….
Before heading upstairs, I stopped at a quick place around the corner from our training building. Hale & Hearty, serves made-to-order sandwiches/salads and has a handful of soup options. I went with a chopped spinach salad base, added red onion, green apples, grapes, red quinoa, bell peppers, turkey, and asked for their mustard vinaigrette on the side.
This “fast food” salad was so good! Can this chain plz come to California?! (Start with NorCal, thankyouverymuch)
Once class ended, I did a lot of exploring and eating (hah). I started with Brooklyn, more on that later!
Question: When you were growing up, did you LOVE J2J and/or Home Improvement? Who was your celebrity friend crush? Mary-Kate and Ashley, Topanga, and Alex Mack (the silver goo blob)
