Life Lately (10).

As classes wind down and summer anticipation winds up, I’m enjoying the last of the not-too-hot ATL / NYC weeks with long runs outside, too much coffee, and the best bagels around. In other words, the essentials.

On days when the humidity hasn’t been at 100%, I’ve managed to discover some new spots for weekend workouts. Above are highlights from the Suwanee Greenway trail, a must-try if you’re in the Atlanta area and looking for a prime run / walk destination. Hills make the course challenging, but you’re rewarded with boardwalks, streams, and lush green fields along the way.

A quick trip to NYC last week had me and a friend sampling dandelion wine and eating a carrot / raisin cookies the size of our faces at the Union Square Farmer’s Market. It was just a little bit magical.

But what would a stint in the city be without good coffee and better bagels? I stopped to smell the roses (and by roses I mean freshly roasted coffee beans and the doughiest dough) at two of my neighborhood favorites: Plowshares (for coffee) and Absolute Bagels, which I promise is well worth the wait on a line that snakes down the block on weekend mornings.

Now it’s back in the ATL for the home stretch of the school year plus a whole lotta finals. I’m taking a play from Nike’s book and Just Doing It.
