New York Diaries — Pt. 3
The marathon is done and dusted, heralding a lot of sore muscles, five shiny race medals and almost five days ahead of adventures through New York.
This morning saw our group capture a different perspective of the city, aboard a boat cruise along the Hudson River. It was the perfect activity for our weary runners and support crew to take in some of the famous landmarks along the harbour, at a slightly more relaxed pace than yesterday’s run.
Of course, the major highlight of the cruise was getting to see the Statue of Liberty up close and personal – such an iconic symbol of the United States and truly beautiful, although Tim did declare her “much smaller in real life”. Watch the footage here.
Our group then spent the rest of the day enjoying the mild weather, with plenty of shopping, visiting museums and enjoying the local delicacy of pizza slices the size of your face.
And despite being on the other side of the globe, we still managed to catch the Melbourne Cup (at 11.00pm Monday night), thanks to the good people at The Australian Bar in midtown. Accompanied with meat pies and Aussie beers, it was a nice taste of home.
