This time next week, we will be in New York City. We arrive early on Friday morning after flying out on a red-eye. I hope to fall asleep for at least a couple of hours on the flight. At 9AM we will board a ferry to Staten Island to take a tour of the course by bus. The elevation map says that the course has a few ups and downs especially around bridges and in Central Park. The bus tour will give me a good idea on how steep these hills are. It will also give me a general sense of the route.
By noon, we should be back at the hotel waiting for Naman, Kruti and Shruti to arrive from Washington, DC. I’d like to pick up my race packet and spend some time at the expo in the afternoon before we go to see A Book Of Mormon on Broadway. This will be followed by dinner at some fancy place. Somewhere in there, I hope to take a nap!
Fortunately, I have made no plans on Saturday. It is my day to rest and relax. I’m sure I will be excited and nervous next Saturday. I still have not decided exactly what I will wear. It will depend on the weather!
For my training, I rested today!
