    I think the best way to experience a city is to run through it :) We have been spoiled here with the weather in San Francisco too (no rain). Can’t wait to go for my long run tomorrow morning.

    When I run in town I always try to sprint through the lights if I see them changing. Im sure I will be hit by a truck one day. Thats why Im grounded to the treadmill most nights.

    I’m always so jealous of bloggers who get to run in NYC!

    So excited for you that Ashley said “yes”!

    Amazing views on that run! I absolutely love running and exploring while on a trip. Next time I am in NYC I definitely want to try and tackle an outdoor run :-)

    I also felt super weird when I was asking my friends to be bridesmaids or to be involved in my wedding. I got all nervous feeling. So weird. Good thing they all said yes!

    What a great view! :) It is nervewracking asking people to be in your bridal party but it’s such a good feeling when they say yes :)

    So fun – I love running in new cities. Where I run now is a bit more urban and I’m definitely becoming familiar with traffic patterns and light timing at the busiest intersections.

    Aawww, blog love 😀 When I used to run I would always stay away from the busy areas of the city. Luckily Chicago had the whole lakefront for running so that wasn’t too difficult!

    I love going for runs when I’m visiting cities! And I totally agree, running in NYC (or big cities like it) makes me long for my suburban MD runs. Luckily DC is not that bad, so running through the city is still an option.

    yay! so fun to get to ask her in person. just curious, from a fellow early-stages-in-wedding-planner, how many are you having in your bridal party?

    Its weird but when I was in suburbia with open roads I missed running in nyc. I think there is so much more stopping and going with traffic lights. In nyc you can run on the west side highway or central park and never have to stop!!!

    Running in a city takes a lot of patience. It’s very difficult to settle in to a pace when you’re constantly starting and stopping!

    I can’t believe you ran in just long-sleeve shirts in NYC in February. Awesome!

    Cute story! I know what you mean about asking people to be in your wedding. It feels so weird!

    I love TJ’s Almond Butter. I usually have to drive an hour to the nearest one but I just found out we are getting a store this year. Woo0-hooo!

    Meghann, I’m so envious! The bridges were my normal running route when I lived in the city. I miss them…so much! I agree with you though – I don’t miss the people dodging. My “local” bridge was the Williamsburg, but I also ran the Brooklyn Bridge a few times while training for my first half-marathon. Seeing the Manhattan skyline makes the run ten times better. Glad you had a great time in NYC!

    That’s so sweet that she accepted being a part of your wedding party! You both seem so sweet; it’ll be an awesome event/day! I can’t wait to see everything come together for you! 😉

    You’re right. You do need to pick up your own jar of that almond butter. Its my favorite kind!

    Awww yay I’m so glad you asked her to be a bridesmaid! Adorable. I remember being super nervous/awkward about asking my bridesmaids too, especially my maid of honor! Totally felt like asking to prom or something, ha.

    This is why so many of us in the city do so many bridle path or prospect park runs. So.much.easier.

    I live in the city right now and the stop lights have become such a pain. Running along the Charles is nice though. My husband and I just bought a house in the “country” of MA, so I’m excited to run along the open road!
