Fyi it's the cherry blossom festival
At the NY Botanical Garden...I'm almost positive it's today but check online beforehand ;-)
but I think it's relatively cloudy..so when the sun disappears...it's cooler
I feel great! I may just join the roadrunners club...I want to see if I can do a half marathon by autumn...but that would mean I'd have to eat and stop smoking cigs and drinking...d'oh!
Another alternative is go to the Whitney, grab a bite at Sarabeths which has a location at the Whitney??
Or of course stroll thru central park and hang out.
