If all goes well for the next 242 days, I will be one of 50,000 running all 5 boroughs of the Big Apple on November 6, 2016 at the New York City Marathon.
I’m relieved to say, it was actually Mike who convinced me to register… After the excitement of Chicago, I thought I’d chill-out this year but the NYC marathon has been on my running bucket list so Mike said what’s the harm in trying? (Like Chicago and other big races, it’s a lottery which I tried and failed at three times before so I think he assumed it was not going to happen). Hah! I’m in.
Convo with Mike:
Me: I got in! This will make 2 out of 6 for the World Marathon Majors M: Awesome, what are the 6?
Me: Chicago, New York, London, Berlin, Tokyo and Boston … (Boston you qualify based on time, it’s not a lottery)
M: Well, you can at least try for the first 5…

No plans have been set in place but I am pretty excited! Marathon five + five boroughs = dreamy.
What about you – have you singed up for anything lately?
psst. Sadly, the NYC marathon lottery closed so I can not invite you to run with me however it is not too late for Chicago. Best.Race.Ever. I found this video yesterday of last year’s race and it gave me goosebumps… I was there!

Day 5. A trip to the Atomium and Mini-Europe plus one last visit to Grand Place and an evening train back to England.
Day 6. Another 8 km run and a trip to Barleylands Farm (sorry, no pics … imagine barn animals, slides, bouncy pillows, mini trains and zip lines … my personal nightmare)
Day 7: The three of us spent the morning in London exploring the city and caught an afternoon bus to Oxford to see my cousin and her husband. We had dinner and drinks at the Turf Tavern and walked the trails home.
As mentioned here, we are travelling to England and thought it’d be fun to put together a board of all the thing I plan to purchase on the other side of the pond. Okay, not really, but a girl’s gotta dream. I will be sure to have my camera at my side at all times to capture the special moments and British inspiration to share with you. Cheerio!
July is here and at the top of my radar is the anticipating arrival of the royal baby. I can virtually see people rolling their eyes right now, but I don’t care, I love the royal family (regardless of their many faults). With this being said, here is my tribute to the royal baby.
