Time flies and almost time to leave my dear US&A for this time.
This beutiful day started with a session in the hotel gym, a Starbucks brekkie, a walk in Central Park and then some random walking in the city where I made some questbar shopping. Now we are at EWR waiting to board LN-RKO back to Scandinavia.

And Saturday turned out to be Sunday and I am still in NYC. It has been a hot day here today with 30 degrees but I like the heat.
The day started with brekkie at my favorite Le pain Quotadien and now I have made my friend addicted to this chain aswell. Win.
Then we walked walked and walked. First stop was 9/11 memorial where I have not been before. It was special. Very nice but the feeling was special so to say.
The we walked the whole Highline. Sounds like a walkacation doesn’t it? It was hot but great to just stroll around.
When we were finished with that we walked even more, checked out some stores and walked back to the hotel for a gym session and shower.
Now we are Downtown again having dinner and wine in the Italian hoods. But listen up we took the subway down there this time.

Saturday and yet another day in my beloved US is almost to an end. It has been a great day filled with NYC stuff. This city is one of the few I keep on coming back to and it has its reasons like:
Central Park. That is the place where I kicked off this morning with a halfmarathon run.
Fantastic NYC styled buildings that I mingled around alongside in SoHo.
Amazing bridges like the classical Brooklyn bridge that I walked over today.
And Shake Shack in Madison where I right now enjoy the worlds best shroom burger. Now my energy reserves are filled up again for some more hours at Manhattan.

Hope you all had a great midsummer wherever you wore. I had a non traditional but for me traditional midsummer on the move. First time in NYC for this time of the year and this is what I did.
Woke up early, had a session at the gym followed by yummy breakfast at Le Pain Quotadien. A NYC must.
Big time mingle around in the city with some shopping. I was so smart that I brought two left shoes with me so had a perfect excuse to buy a new pair of running shoes to walk around in. Well, I am not complaining. There is no such a thing like too many shoes.
Then some boating to Staten Island. I just love the scenic views of Manhattan. We walked around a bit at Staten Island but nothing worth visiting, maybe that is why I have not been there before?
And we got to say hi to the Statue of Liberty before we continued our big walking day and went to:
MOMA. I been there one time before and didn’t liked it also this time it was to arty for me. Art museums is simply not my thing. After that we had great plans for hanging out at rooftop bars but unfortunately we were too tired so it will be an activity for tonight. But trust me it was a great Midsummer even without midsummer drinks and flowers in the hair.

My shape feels terrible right now but luckily I am in a big fat training flow. That helps. Tonight I wanted to train everything but decided that my walk back and forth from work, a Bodypump class with extra heavy weights and some additional core training would be the it. But I am in bad running mode so tomorrow morning I need to run to work. Just because I feel for it. Now. Hopefully I do tomorrow aswell because now I have prepared my running gear for the first transportation jogg to work ever. It will be a historical day to remember!

Wednesday and then, then it is time for a long weekend which I am looking forward to so much. I am heading to New York. One of my favorite cities on Earth. Less than 48 hours to departure and I am over pepp. Here comes a pic from my first NYC visit in 1994, 9 year old me and the coolest kid in the big apple. At least I thought that. I mean look at the pose. Now 33 U.S. trips later I do still get butterflies in my tummy when I book a ticket to the U.S.
/ Pernilla looking forward to us
