Hurricane Sandy really put a wrench in our plans to run the NY City Marathon this year... however, given that many people were without power and water for a number of days, as well as dealing with destroyed homes, neighbourhoods and injured loved ones, all of us from the GWA "wolf-pack" completely understood why it was cancelled.
The sentiment of the trip changed slightly without that 42.2 km lurking in front of us, and the whole group had a fantastic time! It was especially nice hanging out with Troy's parents for a few days- those 2 really lit New York up!
|On our first night Troy, Doug, Ricci and I went to an amazing italian restaurant. Fabio the chef took one look at each of us and proceeded to decide our meal for us- it was really yummy!|
|Fabio- what a guy!|
|Doug and Ricci with their morning juice... I might have forced this first one, but they were both all over the juicing by the end of the trip.|
