“I said, “Hello Brooklyn” but baby I hope you never say goodbye to me.”-Jay Z
Good morning, from the Empire State my babes! My first race of the fall season is here and I’m pumped to finally run a race in New York. This will be my third Rock-n-Roll Half Marathon and the inaugural race in Brooklyn. Race weekend includes a pasta dinner at Queen, post-race donuts from Dough, and all the comfort food my body can handle from Jacob’s Pickles. What can I say? I love to run because I love to eat. After a week of tapering (two 4-mile runs and a 7-miler at race pace), my legs are feeling strong and I’m hoping that running a brand new city will be just the boost I need to get me in the best mind set for the full next month. Cheers to the weekend!
