Training Walk--15.50 miles in all

I have been looking forward to this training walk since Burt suggested it.  Penn Station to Coney Island.  Grab a Nathan's hotdog and take the subway back to Penn.
I met Burt and a few other walkers at Penn at 8:15 and off we walked.
We picked up some more friends along the way.
Here we are at Burt's (and our) favorite spot

We passed the tourists and walked along toward the Brooklyn Bridge.
(No pictures this time ... I was waiting to get into Brooklyn for that.)
It was H-O-T on the Bridge and I was not at the top of my game ... but we carried on ...

By the time we got to Prospect Park ...

Jen and I decided to take this route ...

And instead of eating a Nathan's hotdog (a true New York institution!)
we had lunch here ...
Lindy's ... another New York institution!
(Known for their cheesecake ... and no ... I didn't have cheesecake!)
My stupid pedometer says "11.48" so I've done the math and I figure I walked 15.5 miles in all.
Not bad.


  1. Not bad? NOT BAD? Hells bells... Did the soles of your feet stay on? Because I'm pretty sure mine would have sloughed off at 11 miles...

  2. oh man, that's a long way honey! yikes! you SO rock!

    smiles, bee

  3. You and your friends are awesome, Roberta! Hope you enjoyed that lunch!

  4. I would LOVE to do a walk to Nathans!!!!!!
