The Trypto-Fun Lived Up to Its Name

So what if we were ten minutes late to the Trypto-Fun and everyone was waiting on us? We still had a great time. I’d like to point out that we ran to the starting line with our two children in the double stroller, so I think we can be excused for being a little late. Also, we went to bed at 5:00 in the morning and woke up at 7:00, so we can be excused for looking a little disheveled. I hope.

It was totally worth it, though. Who doesn’t love a brisk morning run when the streets of New York are practically empty and you have the bridges all to yourselves? It’s especially great when you get to do it with friends you’ve known for a while and friends you’ve just met and friends you feel like you’ve known for a while, even if you did just meet.

I’ve always (“always” = the last 5 years) felt that running is a great way to start out a Thanksgiving celebration, not just because of the calories burned, but because it puts me in a thankful frame of mind. And this was especially true this year. We didn’t have a big crowd coming for Thanksgiving like we have in years past — it was just our little family and my sister — and it would have been easy to feel a little lonely. But not when we started out the day sharing a good time and some delicious breakfast with some of the coolest people Brooklyn has to offer.

Thanks for the super-yummy doughnut muffins, Christy. Thanks for the pictures, Valerie. Thanks for coming, Everyone, and for putting the fun in Trypt0-Fun.

    Yeah . . . I think now that we’ve done it once it would be pretty easy to organize group runs/races with just a week or so to plan. Maybe.
