After a couple more frustrating days off, I needed to push myself a bit this morning. I had a nine o'clock appointment near Port Authority and I needed to go food shopping at 72nd & Broadway. A straight shot from 40th to 72nd was no good, so I headed down to South Ferry, turned around, and ran up the Hudson to 72 street. Cold wind blowing off the river, but it was a sunny 35 degree day. What could be better (in mid-December, anyway)?
