A Sunny Run in the Park + Foodie Fuel at Flex Mussels

Yesterday morning, I went for a sunny, shorter weekday run in the park to shake it out after my long run on Tuesday and stay loose for the Oakley Mini 10K tomorrow. It was the perfect June morning…except for the heat. I was meeting my friend Maggie at our usual spot to do 4 miles together before she headed to work and I went to study. The one mile jog up Park Avenue to left me sweating while I waited for her at the corner! We ended up mixing up the run due to the need for shade, and also because the Central Park Conservancy keeps shutting off parts of the reservoir loop for construction at odd intervals. It was the usual trails, but a zig-zag route.
