The best part about day 3 was that I got to spend it with my daughter Angelica who I haven’t seen since August. The only ASICS related gathering we had was going to the highline and heading to the Worlds Largest Selfie Stick!
Angelica arrived at the hotel around 10 and we hit hotel the café for coffee and croissants. We met the rest of the team in the lobby at 11am and headed over to the highline. I personally have never been to the highline and it was great! A hidden path right in the middle of the city, who knew? We walked the highline, met up with a few other bloggers and headed over to the meat packing district where ASICS had created the World’s Largest Selfie Stick.
We exited the highline at the World’s Largest Selfie Stick.
I don’t know who thought this up, but it was pretty cool! Basically, you give them your phone and then ASICS sends it up 8 stories in the air where it takes a 15 second video of you on the ground. I wasn’t too keen about signing a waiver to send my phone up 8 stories in the air, but some of the other team members did and we acted like fools on the ground while we had our video taken.
After the selfie stick Angelica and I headed to Carmine’s to meet my in-laws for lunch. When in New York one must have Italian food and I can safely say that they do not make Italian like that here in Florida, at least not that I have found yet.
After Carmine’s we all walked back toward my hotel, making a pit stop in St. Patrick’s Cathedral to light some candles and look around. It is such an amazing church, you can just feel the spirituality surrounding you when you are in there.
Then we hit the street fair. Angelica got some Nutella donuts and pumpin coffee and I purchased a few souvenirs for Abby.
After the street fair we went back to my hotel room for a little while before grabbing dinner at the Irish pub. It was a fun night! My in-laws headed back to LI and Angelica and I headed back to my hotel. I should have been prepping to run the marathon the next day, but instead I was prepping to watch!
