I got 10 miles in this morning with the lovely Theodora of Losing Weight in the City!
I’m sure most of you already follow her on Tumblr, but if you don’t, you should. She’s awesome. And teeny-tiny!
We met at Columbus Circle for a 6-mile loop around Central Park, and then a trip out to a gorgeous path along the West Side Highway. I was so happy to be running with a New Yorker who could show me where to run outside of the park and point out fun things to me!
The run flew by as we chatted — I wound up with about 10.5 miles at a 9:32 pace on my Garmin, and Theodora had gotten in a few miles earlier to hit 15. She’s training for the NYC Marathon, and I think it’s pretty clear she’s gonna kill it.
Luckily our run ended right outside of a bagel shop (coincidence? of course not) and I got my first New York bagel! It was chewy and delicious, just how I hoped it would be. Thanks, Theodora, for running with me and fulfilling my request of carbs immediately afterward.
Now I need a naaaap. I’m going to a party later, and when I asked the hostess if I could bring something, she replied, “A big bottle of rum.” Umm, yes, I shall rest up first!
