Seeing Cindy's Food Porn blog today (on her recent vacation to New York City) got me really excited about my upcoming trip to NYC in 3 weeks. Work is sending me to Tarrytown (our HQ) for about a week but planning to check out my old stomping grounds in Manhattan over the weekend. My wonderful hubby is planning to join me over the weekend and already, we've been talking about where we're going to go eat. Haha.
So we're in the process of making reservations at Sfoglia one of our favorite neighborhood restaurants in the Upper East Side. I called yesterday and left a message but they haven't gotten back to me, yet. Or Babbo (I haven't been) or Blue Hill, our other favorite restaurant. Or we might try Sugiyama which was very highly reviewed on Yelp. I can't go anywhere without reading Yelp first. Hehe.
Anyone know what the latest eats are in NYC?
That's also the weekend of my 20 miler. Not sure if i want to run Central Park 3 times (which I've done before) or run the perimeter of the island, which really isn't my ideal run... Question for Running Laminator and Laura (or anyone else in NYC for that matter), what do you guys do for your long runs?
Ok, I am really jealous that I am missing the NYCM this weekend. I am totally going to throw my name in the lottery for next year!! And best of luck to the Running Laminator and my friend Jason C who are running the race on Sunday!
Over the weekend, I did a 9 miler trail run with my running group and had some good chats with my running coach. She is a few years shy from 50 but she's in such a great shape (runs 3:20 marathons) you'd never think that she's approaching that age. I'm totally inspired! She's planning on doing the Surf City in February and I'm contemplating that marathon, too. (Although, I've told all my friends to run the Kaiser Perm Half Marathon on the same day in San Francisco... Oops.) I rested Sunday because the trail run was SO tough. I don't think I was fully recovered from the Nike Marathon, yet. Which was nice because I got to sleep in and have a lazy Sunday. I went out for a 6 miler after work yesterday and FELT great! I was doing about 9:10 mile pace which I haven't been able to do for a little while.
