We made it to London! After a long 3 hour delay sitting on the plane, we are here. I am completely Jet-lagged but wanted to take advantage of the fact that it was not raining today and take a run. I ran a few loops around Ealing Common and then back up and around Haven Green. It was not too sunny so I had a nice breeze and manage the extremely large hill back up to the house. It was not as bad as I expected, although I did feel like I might have puked at the top. Here are some of the London sights!
Also, we had a visit from my most favorite niece today!! Baby Emilia stopped by, was tired, but we finally got to meet and hold her for the first time!!
I was feeling a binge coming on so instead me and the Hubby decided to go for a late night walk. It was nice to get out even with the crazy heat! We found this nice little open space on a trail! Love a picture of him rocking his goatee!
Good Morning Quads!! Went for a 4.6 mile run this morning and threw in 4 runs up these lovely stairs. Musical inspiration: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OJos7KTLue4
This morning I ran to another of the many parks in Manhattan. Maybe I will run through all of them before I am done! I ran 5.13 miles in 45 minutes. Not the fastest ever, but an average of 8.45 minutes a mile. Not too shabby and I am trying to get faster. It was amazing to run alongside the river and to see all the amazing views but I could have done with out all of the uphill!!!
Afterwards we had brunch with a friend and then went to check out the Intrepid! Pretty nice day so far!
Here is a view from my run!
