This year I was offered the opportunity to run the New York City marathon for A; a charity that helps children deal with trauma holistically. yrrsI raised $5200 or a $4000ds goal. I am very happy.
The day of the marathon I had to get to the starting line. This is not an easy ordeal. I caught the 6:40 train in Paterson, NJ and arrived at the starting corral at 10:30. Yes, It took me nearly 4 hours to get to the starting line.
My goal for the marathon was 6 hours walking. I almost reached my goal by doing it in 6:04 and running the last 4 miles. Yes I ran the last 4 miles. That was the only way I could finish.
Next marathon I wish to walk the whole way and average a minute less per mile for the whole route.
Next day I feel great other than a sore knee and a sore foot. This was an awesome experience. I feel blessed.
Well it's been a while since I have posted here on mutableearth.com. In November 2016 I started my new job in the city. I have a wonderful kitchen with great equipment, a great company to work for and the best view of any professional kitchen in the city. At first it was a little unnerved with the view of the city.
I have been used to basements, closets and galleys.
Here is a short video I took returning to Manhattan from Bear Mountain on Manhattan 1 from Classic Harbor Line. The clouds were rolling in and the sky was beautiful. Music recorded and film shot and edited on iPad air2 Enjoy!
