You ever just have a moment where you think, wow, this is my life. I had that thought today. As I mentioned in my last post, I’m training for the United Airlines NYC Half Marathon (22 days away!) so I went for a run this morning along the West Side Highway. As I was rounding out mile 6 of 8, I looked down towards Tribeca and the WTC and had the most beautiful view of the city and I smiled thinking about how happy I am to be living here. I must have looked like a total dufus smiling while running but I couldn’t help it. I had that moment where I thought, wow, I can’t believe I get to live here.
New York. It’s my home. It’s not that I see myself here forever necessarily but it’s is a big part of who I am today. I moved here when I was 18 to attend NYU, fell in love with this city, and couldn’t leave. It’s hella expensive, has brutally cold winters (in my opinion because I’m a total and complete wimp in the cold) and excruciatingly hot summers (sweaty bodies on the subway in August, no thanks), and can be really isolating. But it’s alive. This city has a pulse. It is constantly changing and challenging. There is so much to see and learn. Of course it has museums and parks and beautiful things like that but for me, it’s the food. I probably spend way too much time researching the New York food scene. But there is so much out there to try! Knowing that, makes me want to stay and learn… and eat. That’s really why I started my Instagram account, @FeelingFuller. I’m always eager to try more of what New York has to offer. And I want to share it!
This is going to be my outlet to put all my thoughts and feelings about food. Maybe some other things in my life, like running and #struggles. Who really knows. I’ll let it evolve into whatever it wants to be. Hopefully you enjoy!
