Yesterday. Actual distance more like 14 miles. Coney Island -> Gowanus. (Then subway home. Attn stalkers: the end of this map is not where I live.)
I had a great plan to make an Instagram video of my walk, and I recorded a second at a time from a few different places I passed, but around mile 6 my Instagram refreshed and I lost everything :( Anyone know how to make Instagram not do that?
I’ve walked further than this, but this felt really hard for some reason. The last like 3 miles my calves and hips hurt, but I was fully committed to making it to the new Ample Hills ice cream in Gowanus. At the end I got a half oatmeal cookie/half chocolate stout & pretzels cup and ate it on their roof deck before heading home to collapse and sit.
After my victory at pub golf, I woke up in dire need of a breakfast burrito (and with a burned tongue from impatiently eating empanadas last night.) It was easier to go to the store and make my own than to find one that was up to my standards.
No, wearing the race shirt is a rookie move. vs Yes, unless you’re a grumpy elitist.
I’m inclined to agree with the latter. I’m not pro-new-shirt-race-day but also, who fucking cares? (The pro-argument in this case is all “do it! It’s awesome!” which is further than I’d go, but I’ve certainly stopped harboring any judgement for people who do this…)
Maybe it’s because I’m an old and long ago stopped giving a shit about being ‘cool’?
