Living in NYC has its perks, especially when it comes to running. But until today, I haven't actually really ran in Manhattan (well, once but it was on a Boardwalk with other runners). I live in Queens so I run in Queens. Most of the time running in my neighborhood is quite and pretty laid back. I don't have obstacles to run around.
Since today was amazingly beautiful, I decided to take my lunch break and get my 5 miles in. It was AWESOME! I actually didn't use my Garmin (OMG!) and I had a PR for training. There were the downsides, like tripping in a pot hole and twisting my ankle :( Oh well.... off to ice it and take some Ibuprofen.
