Annual Celebration. Dr. Husband’s Birthday Eve. Central Park goes all out in its pyrotechnics display. This year was most awesome.

Okay. It’s also the NYC Marathon Opening Ceremony. They let us locals get right under the lights without obstruction.

No. Not going to run. But hey. It’s fun!

City Life

Another evening on Central Park West. Commuters walking by. Bicycles too. No matter that above the trees fireworks booming and flashing. We went to the corner to watch. People looked at us rather than the show in the sky. Yes. That’s everyday life in the City.

Oh and. There was that marathon. Runners came out of the Park donning their hard-earned blue ponchos with a sense of pride and accomplishment. But. Not many fans were around to cheer. Rainy day damper. Congrats nonetheless. They were finishing well into the night.

Marathon Sunday

74th-runA sea of blue up and down Central Park West. Ponchos given to those who completed the grueling New York City Marathon. Our view from 74th Street. Hard to believe so many people were able to achieve such an impressive feat. Lots of sore bodies and feet.

Meanwhile, last election marathon. Both candidates hitting many states on this penultimate day of campaigning. Now. Let’s get through Monday. We’re all on our last leg.
