New York City
So 2006 it is..my third New Years in New York.  New Years Eve was actually quite pleasant for once.  I had a group of about 10 or so people over to my place before heading out to my second home, Central Park for the Midnight Run.  For those wondering at home, I had some wine prior to the run;-)  The costumes were interesting for sure as I saw a couple people as Christo's Shower Curtains...err I mean Gates (saffron people, not orange:-p), a robot, amongst many others.  Sadly, we didn't dress up this year but we've already come up with some ideas for next year should we choose the run again:0)

After the run, we ran back to my place to continue the party.  We had mimosas (of course!), apple martinis (garnished with an apple slice!), wine, chips with spinach dip, homemade hummus and pita, chocolate mint cookies, double peanut butter cookies, chocolate mint kisses, stuffed mushrooms.  So yes, lots of yummy stuff to ring in 2006.  The company was fabulous and unlike most parties which seemed to end before 1...people didn't leave until around 3 or so. As you can see from the photo, the golden shoe is proudly on display:)  And doesn't Sempre Libera look good in blue hair?

New Years day was spent being the laziest person alive.  I didn't leave the apartment until 6:15pm to go for a run with AB and Sempre Libera in the park.  It was truly wonderful though...:)  I'm planning on getting my speed workout in today since the rest of the week will be spent in luxurious Biloxi, Mississippi for work.

Before I forget, I want to welcome a new comer to the blogging world, Justin.  He's currently in training for the MS150 but I'll leave it to him to tell you about his traning and why he's doing this.  Go Justin...you rock

I leave you with stats from NYC in 2005. Some of my favorites include:34.3 million hot dogs sold, the most of any city in the world, 7.3 million gallons of vodka consumed, 175,162 miles traveled by an average subway car , 692 hours the average time spent online per person, 100,000 members joined the 45 New York Sports Clubs in the five boroughs, 178 billionaires living in New York City, compared to 188 in 2004 (aww man I knew I was losing money:p).
  • "7.3 million gallons of vodka consumed"
    I think I played a big part in that consumption this year :-D

    anyway, looks like new year's was fun-cookies looked divine and sounded like the run was fun too-though those Gates peeps...don't they know that was soooo 2005? :)
  • Hi, just stumbled onto your LJ, we are just back from NY after visiting for the first time. Loved the photos, brought back happy memories of NY.
    • Thanks for stopping by! Sorry I didn't get back sooner...I've been away on business this week. Anyway NYC has its way of making its presence known to the world...and loved:) Glad you enjoyed your first stop here....and here's to hoping you come back for more:)
