Since I am still recovering from the NJ Marathon, I thought I'd try getting my miles in during lunch time. I realized yesterday, that it simply was not working out. Wokr kept getting in the way, and when I did managed to sneak out,I constantly felt rushed, and my favorite lower Manhattan runnig routes were crowded with tourists, and other people escaping from their offices during lunchtime. This morning I woke up at 5 am, caught the bus to the Port Authority, and then the subway downtown. Today was was one of those picture perfect mornings in the city. The temperatures were cool and the skies were blue. My legs took me to the Brooklyn Bridge. I was so happy to be back on the bridge. There were no tourists trying to line up the perfect picture, no power walkers, and very few messengers on bicycles. Just me, some other runners, and some great views of the city.
Later in the day a co-worker mentioned that I've been walking around with a permanent smile on my face all day. Even though I was bening pulled in every direction at work, I told him I was in a great mood because of my run this morning.
