Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island

This time tomorrow I should be finished running the New York City Marathon and soothing my sore muscles.  I limited my sightseeing today to taking the water taxi out to see the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, don’t want to over stress the legs by walking around too much.  I must say that seeing the Statue of Liberty up close is pretty emotional, makes you proud to be an American, definitely special.

Here are some photos from today.

Statue of Liberty, she definitely radiates the ideals of the United States - I could feel it.

Staten Island Ferry Terminal, where I'll be catching the ferry tomorrow at 6 AM to the start line.

Blocked off Wall Street, look like they were shooting a movie. Heard they are filming the next Batman movie.

Today's lunch. Last big carbo meal before the marathon. Plan to eat something light tonight.


About runninginspired

I’m in my mid-40s and have been running for about 19 years. I have finished 24 marathons with a personal best time of 3:04. I currently reside in San Diego, CA. I enjoy running since it keeps you honest and will give back what you put into it. Work hard, but smart, and good results will eventually follow. I like to experiment with training plans, gadgets, shoes, and nutrition to find what works for me. The primary purpose of this blog is to document my training and thoughts about running in my ongoing quest to improve my fitness and health.
