Back in NYC!

477 miles of training later, I'm finally back in NYC! That's about 80 miles short of plan, but I've been perfect the last 2 months and I feel great.

Flew up today and while I was putting my bag in the overhead, the lady behind asked if I was going up for the marathon. She said I "looked like I was" - hey, that's a good sign! Then the guy who ended up in my row asked if I was running the marathon too. He said "I looked like a runner" - another good sign! I'm feeling good vibes all over.

I took the train in from Newark to New York Penn Station, then the subway to my hotel in Midtown. Took a few minutes to get used to the faster pace in NYC. Subway back down to Chinatown for dinner, and bought some bakery items back for snacks. I've semi-consciously started to carb up. One hour past dinner and 2 of my 3 snacks are gone already! I've also been drinking lots of water.

Tomorrow's a day to take it easy. Happy Halloween to everyone!
