Just back from a short visit to NYC where my brother lives. He is fortunate to rent a place very close to Central Park, which provides a better training backdrop in the centre of any other major city. And while we missed out on watching the NYC marathon, we were fortunate to catch a few post-race running store sales.
Here's an edited photo of the view from the reservoir in Central Park where we ran during our visit.
Is anyone else from Team Polar running in this? I'll be down there with a team from the Okanagan. It usually POORS rain for the entire day, but I have never been to a better after-race party! And there are similar scenes as you would see in Ironman - competitors in the solo 100km event dragging themselves across the finish line. It's a great event . . . . .
