The Big Apple!

I’m back! 

Sorry for the little break- I was visiting my college roommate in Long Island (hi Nicole!). It was such a fun trip, and I had a blast hanging out with her and her family.

Aaaaaannd, she took me into New York City- my first time in the Big Apple! I really got the full New York experience- I rode a taxi, chatted a bit with Kelly Rippa, spotted the boys of One Direction, and got to meet Taylor Swift!!!!!

Well… not really.  But, we did go to Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum in Times Square so it was almost the same thing. I also took a pic with N’Sync (I’m not ashamed to admit I’ve got a few of their songs in my running playlist!)

The hustle and bustle of New York was sooo different to me! I have been in cities before, but New York was bigger, louder, and brighter! I probably looked like the ultimate tourist, craning my neck to look up at all the skyscrapers surrounding me.

I also got to experience delicious Long Island style pizza and bagels, which really were pretty awesome. As a student at a New York college, I have listened to an extensive amount of bragging about the wonders of Long Island bagels and pizza (and I always wondered to myself if they were all that special). Well, both the bagels and pizza lived up to the hype!

I also got to see Despicable Me 2 on the trip, and it was hilarious. Seriously, if you haven’t seen this movie, go see it. I have become a big fan of minions- anyone know where I can get one?

I came home Saturday evening, and got back into my running Sunday morning with a beautiful mid-distance run of just under 7 miles. The weather has been feeling really fall-ish lately. It’s been great for running, but I don’t want the summer warmth to disappear just yet!

This week, I’m hoping to squeeze in one last long run before the half-marathon on Saturday (8/10). The course for this one is going to be interesting (aka hilly), but more on that later!
