New York City
So last night was my running club's monthly Last Thursday gathering with a twist. Instead of a) just our club and b) on the UES or UWS, we held joint happy hours with the NY Flyers and NY Harriers at a downtown location, B Bar. After a rough week with some issues beyond this forum, it was a much welcome atmosphere to be amongst what I call my NY family and putting back some hefeweizens. So of course this venue brought together the ventures of runner bloggers...some I have met before and others that "came out of the closet";-) While running was discussed, it wasn't the only means of conversation by any means...which is always cool. Sadly, no catwalk was set up for this happy hour...maybe next time;-) I was rather impressed with the fact that over 30 members from my team showed up throughout the evening...it was like a shot in the arm for our once fading Last Thursday!

One thing that definitely sticks out from meeting so many people is it gives me a few more people to wave hello to along the park drive. I think I am now beginning to understand how my dad knows everyone in the park he runs in. Hopefully, we'll have another one of these because it was a nice change to break away from the usual pace.

Oh and before I sign off and head into weekendville - my new digital camera has arrived!!!! No more 1.3 megapixel baloney....8.4 megapixels of goodness coming to a webpage near you:-)

Best of luck to all those running Queens tomorrow...and oh I am so excited for the run to Peanut Butter on Sunday!!!

    No catwalk, perhaps, but I do believe I saw some twirling...

  • did they all come out especially for the cute single guys? :-D

    it was a great time..hopefully our crew will have more of a showing next time (i guess that experiment with doing something below 14th street didn't work!! ah well, live and learn...and the ones who did show were very cool.)

    have fun tomorrow-have some White Chocolate Wonderful for me :)
