Tales Of A Slow Run In Central Park

Central Park can be a distracting place to run. Every couple of yards, there is something else I want to stop and take a picture of so I can share it with you.
These pictures are why today’s 5K run took almost 40 minutes
A bench by the water with the city as a backdrop. Isn’t this the most idyllic spot you can imagine?

Complete with bird watching opportunities. This was a rare sighting of a bluejay in Central Park.

This road that just looked like it would lead to somewhere interesting.
