'Good Things Come Slow' - NYC Marathon 2011

Being a running enthusiast, I have this dream of one day, just maybe, one day running a half-marathon. Once I have that under my belt, a full 26.2 miler will beckon me, I know. Imagine my surprise then, when I discovered the New York City Marathon would go right passed my building. In fact, that I would be able to see it from my bedroom window (see last photo below).

Now even though the event, which took place well over a month ago on October 28,2011, is long gone - I've got photos for inspiration.

And so, after rehashing a dream and post 'The Biggest Loser' season finale tonight, I'm feeling quite up to the challenge. Too bad I'm in bed with heating pad and a bad back.

It's with those thoughts and one my mother's famous sayings echoing in my ears, 'Good things come slow, Ann, good things come slow', that I will end this post and let you peruse these pics.

Til next time...

The support runners received was amazing - it was such a cool thing to witness

Photo of the Week - Coney Island Wonder Wheel

My apologies for vacating the wonderful world of blogosphere!! With a new job and hitting the gym every evening my creative juices haven't really been flowing much, I'm ashamed to say.

Anyway, many moons ago (ok, ok not that many moons ago - September, perhaps) my friend and I paid our respects to one of our favorite spots in Brooklyn - Coney Island. One of the famous sights of Coney Island is none other than the Wonder Wheel ferris wheel. Due to my fear of heights, I would have been fine taking it in from the ground, However, after much convincing by my chum, we clammered into one of the little cars. Good thing - for we got some awesome shots.

Here's one of them :-)
