I ordered new running shoes for my trip. I expected them to arrive while I was in Massachusetts (I had them shipped to the hotel) but the shipment was delayed and they arrived after I left.
The hotel was happy to send them to me via FedEx to my hotel in NYC. Supposedly they went out this afternoon but this morning I started to get worried that they would arrive to late to get my run in this week.
I located a running store a few blocks away and picked up another pair of running shoes. Why get shoes right now?? It is supposed to start raining tomorrow afternoon and keep raining for at least a couple of days.
Then I realized I forgot to pack my running bra - the woman at the running store mentioned a big Nike store a few streets over.
The store was huge!
It was at least 4 floors -
And here is a travel tip for any runners out there who are well-endowed and running without a good bra (as in these babies need to be really locked down or there will be no running possible) -
I knew it was a slim possibility to find the body-armor-type running bra I usually wear so I got what Nike labels as a 'high impact bra' (it is soooo NOT) and grabbed a regular shelf running bra in one size too small.
I will wear both of them and it should be good makeshift super supportive running bra solution.
And I have to say that Asics shoe colors just keep getting worse and worse. Check it out:
|It looks like they couldn't decide on just one color and they decided to pick ALL of the fluorescent colors|
After a short rest, I caught a taxi to the American Museum of Natural History.
My favorite part of this museum are the dioramas.
Then I took a long walk back to the hotel through Central Park.
|The water was this bizarre shade of green - eww.|
I am off to dinner at a cool Parisian style restaurant near the hotel (at least I hope it will be cool:-)).
*Fingers crossed* that the pictures I take at dinner actually come out.
