Why NYC? Why not??

Monday, November 9, 2009

Why is this my goal marathon? What's not to like about New York City? The city that never sleeps, the culture, broadway, the glitz, and one of the best (some will argue the best) marathons in the world. The marathon is in November, at temperatures that I can handle. (Training on an island in the middle of the North Atlantic means cool-ish training temperatures for most of the year)

I have been to New York City once before, concidentally, in November, the same month as the NYC marathon. I mostly did "the tourist" thing - saw the sights, but did uncover some great gems that can only be NYC!

Many know that I heart peanut butter! Especially peanut butter and chocolate combinations. One of my favourite meals while in NYC was at a tiny sandwich shop called - wait for it - Peanut Butter and Co. Everything on the menu involves Peanut Butter!

Here I am, chowing down at Peanut Butter and Co.

(as an aside - I have also just discovered that PB and Co. publishes a cookbook - ummm, wishlist!)

My next trip to NYC, I would like to uncover some more hidden gems, see a show (Broadway was on strike during my last visit) and EAT some more delicious food. Tell me your favourite spots and things to do in NYC and I'll compile a list of must-see ideas for a future post!
