(rest day)

Meant to go for a final jog in Central Park before heading to the airport but settled for brunch and the Harlem Gospel Choir instead.

What a great week.

Running 55:00 [3] 5.73 mi (9:36 / mi)
ahr:108 shoes: Brooks Adrenaline Aug 2009

Sightseing run round Central Park with Rosco and MC, sunshine and autumnal colours and a nice gentle pace. All good. Apart from my hamstrings which are some way from being recovered yet....

Went to the ticker tape parade for the Yankees winning the World Series. Huge huge crowds in the several millions, amazing.

(rest day)

Still pretty sore in the hamstrings. Spent all day in museums and saw some fab things, although even after several hours in the Metropolitan it still felt like we had barely started to see what was there!

More walking. Good for me I'm sure.

Need to update my New York report sometime to show that I did get back in front of Minnie Mouse before the finish!

(rest day)

Actually and surprisingly did lots of walking (well "walking") round NYC including a visit back to the finish for some finisher memorabilia....

Went to the top of the Rockefeller Center (by elevator obviously!) for amazing views of the lights of the city.
