Walked Manhattan

In May, a friend and I walked Manhattan. By walk Manhattan I mean walk the island from tip to tip. The route we walked was mostly the Broadway route with a few detours. It ended up being about 14.2 miles. In preparation I did several training hikes in Manhattan of 7 to 8 miles each. I was surprised how little I hurt after walking the length of Manhattan. I hurt much worse after the training hikes.

    Did you have one of the “Beard Papa’s” cream puffs? Reggie loves cream puffs and I am sure he would love to try one.

    I think it would be lots of fun- though I don’t think I could do it. Times square looks very crowded.
