A Weekend of Fun- I’m a TriAthlete!

Because I am doing the MORE Half-Marathon next weekend, which I feel woefully unprepared for, I needed to run 10 Miles Saturday.

New York weather usually makes me angry but the Spring is the one exception. My friend Miki is a biker and had an idea to bike up to the George Washington Bridge where there were tennis courts. I could combine laying out, tanning as well as running. I am my own TriAthlete.!

I decided to run 5 miles out and 5 back. Of course on the way there I got very lost but at 148th street did find my way back down to the water and I seriously feel in love with this run. It is so peaceful up there and because of being lost I think I may have hit more than 5.

Miki met me and packed a lunch then we played about 45 mins of tennis and enjoyed the sun. I was realizing at this point I had had a bit too much sun. Combined with my lunch and the tennis my run back was a mix of walking and running. I think in the future I need to bring my water bottles. Now the weather is warm hydration and sunscreen need to be part of my routine!

In the end it was amazing. Miki and I are planning on bringing a crew up to the GWB to just have a picnic…maybe then I can bring Fiona as well! Even though it tired me out of my race today it was worth it, and we got some fun pictures as well!
