In the Big Apple
Well here we all are in the Big Apple with one day to go before the epic journey around the world begins. Since I stepped off the plane on Monday, it certainly has been all go! So much information to absorb but its all needed as we have got so much to tell the world as we run around it.
Today we have had a day off and its been so nice to relax and catch up with my emails to family and friends. Had a fantastic run around Central Park this morning with 5 of the other team members. Emmanuel from Kenya and Jason from Canada and I all decided to add in a bit of speed work during our lap around Central Park. We did 7 x 30 sprints, and after all that flying from New Zealand it was good to stretch the legs out. I was surprised at how good I felt as usually it takes at least 7 days to feel like a runner again after all that flying.
So tonight we have the Dow Cocktail reception followed by the Kick-off Dinner. Our celebrity guest of honour is the actress Hilary Swank - I love her movies so its going to be nice to meet her.
