TWO posts today! One semi-about running. This one completely on running!
Went solo and started LATE, but it has FINALLY cooled off outside, so all was good. And it was LIGHT out! 3 hours… from my apartment to the Bronx… and back. My legs were tired by the end, especially since I ran the last few miles at marathon pace, but I did get in another bridge crossing – Broadway Bridge on 225th Street, so I think only the Triborough is left in my attempt to run all of the bridges connected to Manhattan. I got lost in Inwood Park at one point (1st time there! And don’t even know how I ended up in there!) but escaped after about 20 minutes to have this conversation with Shopping Cart Lady:
ME: Where’s the bridge?
SHOPPING CART LADY: Bridge? Why? You want to take the bus there?
ME: No, I’m running.
SHOPPING CART LADY: What? Why don’t you just take a bus???
She did direct me to the bridge, though. Thanks lady!
Lastly, donations are starting to pick up. Keep ’em coming. THANK YOU ALL!
