I took it a little slower today, visiting a couple museums and walking the last mile of the New York City Marathon through Central Park. The last mile is hilly, so I’ll need to try and mentally prepare for it.
This was my third full day and New York and I’m just overwhelmed with the city. It is like walking through Disneyland, just so much stimuli going on around you and the city is so photogenic. It’s no wonder artists flock here in droves to be inspired. And everything is just so big. Today I visited the The Metropolitan Museum of Art (The Met) and American Museum of Natural History. There was just way too much to see. You could easily spend a whole day or more in each museum and still not see everything.
This morning I ran about 3 miles at marathon pace to keep the legs limber. Felt okay. The weather for marathon day is shaping up to be ideal conditions (40 – 56 degrees and sunny) assuming the wind is tame.
Here are some photos from today.
