so this morning i ran the longest distance i ever have, off or on the treadmill - 4.58 miles!
my sister and i got up bright and early again, and took off down the eastside. we aimed for, and reached, the the brooklyn bridge. it was a gorgeous morning, the perfect balance of sun and shade. the path was a buzz with activity - lots of other runners, bikers and people from nearby chinatown over by the river doing calestetics and tai-chi. when you live in new york, the times that you feel as though you are part of a community can be few and far between. let's face it - most of us don't even know our neighbors. today, i felt like an integral part of the city's complex colorful fabric.
today's distance: 4.48
