66 Days to NYC
You'll notice that I did not post anything for 67 days to NYC. Ummmm. Yeah...
You would be very proud of me. Even in the middle of nowhere, literally, I ran. Snaps for me. We stayed at Turning Stone casino outside of Utica, NY on our way to the city and shockingly, they had a fitness trail around the perimeter of the property. Ran it three times. Thats right, uh huh. And I felt extra-hot while doing it as the majority of the patrons of that fine establishment play in slot tournaments in smoky casinos (they are the ones contributing the smoke) for a living. And in between the tournaments, they have side bets with their fellow gamblers about who can eat more at the buffets.
Was doubly proud of myself for not yet partaking in the usual grease-fest I partake in on road trips. Had a lovely turkey sandwich for a post-running meal and grilled chicken-no cheese, no mayo-at our McD's break in driving. And their chipotle bbq sauce ain't that bad.
Re-read the NY Times summer reading guide to try to spark some interest. Just can't seem to get out of this reading funk. Now I really want to read A Happy Marriage and The Story Girls. Maybe I can convince Len to go with me to a bookstore on our way back to T. Dot. Although I think I have used up all of my "go to the bookstore" coupons for this summer.
