Great Strides Walk #2!

I have to say off the bat that I think I am in love with NYC! All the people is a little un-nerving but wow…it was my first time sleeping over in the big apple and man o man I loved it! Helped a bunch that my host lives in a fabulous apartment with a fantastic view.

I got to town about 5pm on Saturday. Piper met me outside of Madison Square Garden and Penn Station. That was a riot! We skirted down from the taxi stand and caught a cab and as we were pulling away we got stopped and yelled at! It’s illegal to do that around the station…oppsie! But they let us go thankfully!

I got to meet Sammy and he is so super cute! And what a little fur ball! It made me miss Maggie!!!

Piper and I had a quiet evening. We went to dinner then had gelato (awesome from Groms) then met up with her friend Ben and had a drink. It was fun hanging out with Piper and her friends. We went back to her place and waited for her other friend Luke to get into town from New Haven. Soon after he arrived I went to bed.

Today we did breakfast with her team at her place and then headed to the walk site in Battery Park. There we met up with Graves and Joni and her sister. It was awesome seeing them again. The route took us from battery Park, to Piper’s apt (well 3 blocks over) and back to Battery Park. So we opted to go back to her place at the halfway point since technically we had just walked that to get there. We ate brunch and soon after Graves and I grabbed a taxi and headed back to Penn Station. Thus ended my NYC Great Strides Adventure.

At least this time I was smart enough to get some pictures!!!!
