The Long Journey Home
On Sunday I watched the New York City Marathon.
A couple of my friends were running it, so I went to the East Side to watch them running down 5th Avenue in the last 4-5 miles.
Afterwards, I had trouble getting home. I made the mistake of walking through Central Park. It took me over two hours to get back to the Upper West Side!
It seemed that the entire West Side was barricaded. So I took the long route home.
I walked through The Ramble, and saw some birds and nice autumn foliage. And I enjoyed the view of the New York City skyline from my vantage point:
I think I was more exhausted after that trek than the people who ran the marathon! I went home, took a hot bath, put bandages on my blisters and had a cup of tea.#
