Or am starting to feel like one, anyway.
And it’s kind of a fun feeling. I admit, I get a little rush of pride when some random tourist stops me on the street – picks me, out of all of the people walking around! – to ask where Bleecker street is or which way to the 1 train. I feel kinda proud of myself when I can actually answer, too. My neighborhood is not the most easily understood place in the city.
I kind of wonder what will end up happening next year; if we will stay in NYC or end up somewhere else. I never thought I’d say this, but I would actually be OK with staying here for a few more years. Not, like, forever….but for a couple more years? Sure. I like it here. A lot more than I thought I would.
Today’s DRINK: After dinner, headed to a monthly meet-up thingy with the some of the hubs’ b-school classmates. We’re going to Cowgirl Hall of Fame, which looks just deliciously kitschy and fun. I’m wearing my pink Frye boots for the occasion. 🙂
Today’s RUN: Well, I’ll start by saying that my run yesterday (which I never blogged) was a disaster. Ugh. I went out for five miles and made it maybe four, generously. I made a mistake which I often make when the season is changing: I dressed totally inappropriately. Looked outside and saw rain and wind and thought “December – cold” and put on tights and a long sleeved tee. Well, it was actually in the 50s. If there is one thing that I hate while running, it is being too hot. I was miserable. Ugh! In addition to that, I just felt off: my legs were all heavy, my lunch was staging a rebellion in my tummy, my head was itchy. Writing that one off to a bad day!
Thankfully, today’s workout was better! I needed to do weights, and was too lazy to try to run AND go to the gym, so I just did a short run on the treadmill, 3 miles, 22:55. Tried to keep the pace a little brisk to compensate for the short distance. And then I did my weight workout (upper body – back, shoulders mostly) and it was great!
