Monday love day #4: NYC edition

1. NYC in the fall: the weather is so beautiful at this time of year.  I was blessed enough to spend a beautiful 2 days in Manhattan with Mom & Kara, soaking up the crisp air and autumn leaves (the few that can be seen in Manhattan). The ice skating rink was up at Rockefeller so we were also able to watch skaters spin round and round. Thankfully the tree wasn't up yet; it's a bit too early for that.

2. Bolt bus: I know, totally weird. But without Bolt I don't think NYC would have happened. How awesome is it that for $40 round trip I can safely (and cleanly) travel from Krabby Land to NYC? That 15 minute rest stop in Delaware was pretty nice too.

3. NYC marathon: I do have a quick un-love here. The medical tents, barricades, etc were all taken down well before the last runners made it in. It just seems unfair and cruel to the runners still going for it, especially given that there's no time limit on this marathon. If there was a time limit it'd be a totally different situation. On the whole though, I loved watching the marathon. In fact, I'm starting to train for running it one day. It was so inspiring to see runners of all shapes, sizes and ages setting out to run 26.2 miles. Despite packing up much of the race before the runners finished, there were still people to greet Kara and Chris and put medals around their neck after they crossed the finish. The photographers were still in place and there were still some people cheering for them. It was wonderful to see. I couldn't have been more proud of the both of them for finishing on Sunday.
