No running today.
Flew to NYC, my brother Jim picked me up at the airport and we drove to packet pickup, then checked into our hotels, had lunch and then some "light" sightseeing which turned into 18,000 steps or 8.7 miles according to the garmin 630.
Highlights of the walking were Rockefeller Center, Trump Tower, Central Park (where a small crowd of people were fascinated with a black cat sitting high up on a rock), and then attended mass at St. Patrick's Cathedral. The priest who said mass was going to run in the race this year, his second marathon despite having two artificial knees. He invited all the runners up to the altar for a blessing (hundreds came up, perhaps even 1000, while the organist did a stirring rendition of "Fanfare for the Common Man" - which previously I only knew of the Emerson Lake & Palmer version used on CBS Sports Spectacular).
