Travelog # 41 - Jog in the Park

Last Sunday, I had the pleasure doing my weekly run in the Central Park. I had been to Central Park many times, but this is the first time I got the opportunity to run and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Huge Reservoir in Central Park
Central Park is over 840 acres right in the middle of the concrete jungle.. It has enough running tracks to conduct a ultra marathon comfortably without run thru the same track twice. A huge reservoir right in the middle of central park..

Running track around reservoir..
With a beautiful running / jogging track a around the reservoir.. I did two laps and man that felt good..

My route in Central..
This is the route I did in central park last Sunday. I started at south Central Park, but ended northwest of the park and ended up..

NYC Subway Station 169th Street
Taking subway back to my hotel.. the twenty dollar I took with me in the last minute came handy..
