So I headed due north from the Theater District and could see the bare trees just a few blocks in front of me. Traffic was light on a Sunday morning. A few taxis here and there, but mostly one-way open roads that cut through skyscrapers. I ran past Radio City Music Call, the Ed Sullivan Theater, Rockefeller Center onto the paths of the most amazing acreage of Manhattan and directly into --oncoming runners! Today was the Manhattan Half Marathon! Thousands of runners spending their morning in 16 degrees, running 13.1 miles.
I will never complain again about dipping desert temps in Arizona. New Yorkers are tough. I was amazed at their determination and spirit. Nothing stops a New Yorker. My morning was awesome. My run, spectacular.
I love NY.
