I told you I'd check in from time to time (hopefully at least two or three of you still have me lingering at the bottom of your bloglines).
Since my pals Lucas and Jason are finally taking the marathon plunge I've decided to join them along with some other friends for the NYC marathon on November 2. I'm posting in hopes that a few of my more cosmopolitan running-blog brethren out there might have some travel and accommodation tips for our Tucson gang.
If anyone has some good ideas about where to stay to make the NYC marathon as stress-free as possible please feel free to comment here or email me from my profile. I don't travel too often, and a quick look at the hotel list and area map has my head swimming. We certainly aren't averse to public transit, so if there are good areas to stay where we could use the subway to get around that aren't $400 a night, by all means tell me about them.
As for the running, it's been pretty much business as usual. The log is fairly up to date and tells the tale. I'm pretty much over whatever made me type in orange for a few days last week, or at least I'm healthy enough for yard-work.
Thank you again for all the kind comments after the farewell posts, your sentiments are deeply appreciated.
