water, water everywhere…

…yet not a drop to drink.

Post NYC-marathon season in NYC means one thing is inevitable…the Central Park water fountains being shut off for the winter, one by one. (Actually a couple were shut off as early as last week, and I cursed that in the 70-degree temps.) So far the fountain by Engineer’s Gate and by the tennis courts on the west side are still working, but we’ll see for how long.

Anyway, a sluggish 5 miles this morning. Don’t know if it was the sudden dip in temperatures…or the fact that I will always be slower running in the early morning than after work, but I seemed to be missing the spring in my step that I thought I was getting back…

Well there is one good thing about this time of year, that I have learned to look forward to the last few years…the special holiday beverages at Starbucks in their cute red holiday-style cups. Gingerbread Lattes and Peppermint Mochas…yum!!

And one other thing I am looking forward to-Madonna’s new CD, Confessions on a Dancefloor, being released on Tuesday. WKTU previewed the entire CD last nite and it is killer. Can’t wait to snatch this one up. (Some may recognize the quote on the top of my blog from the first single from that album, “Hung Up.”)

Time goes by so slowly (x6)

Every little thing that you say or do
I’m hung up
I’m hung up on you
Waiting for your call
Baby night and day
I’m fed up
I’m tired of waiting on you

Time goes by so slowly for those who wait
No time to hesitate
Those who run seem to have all the fun
I’m caught up
I don’t know what to do

Time goes by so slowly
Time goes by so slowly
Time goes by so slowly
I don’t know what to do

Every little thing that you say or do
I’m hung up
I’m hung up on you
Waiting for your call
Baby night and day
I’m fed up
I’m tired of waiting on you

Every little thing that you say or do
I’m hung up
I’m hung up on you
Waiting for your call
Baby night and day
I’m fed up
I’m tired of waiting on you

Ring ring ring goes the telephone
The lights are on but there’s no one home
Tick tick tock it’s a quarter to two
And I’m done
I’m hanging up on you

I can’t keep on waiting for you
I know that you’re still hesitating
Don’t cry for me
’cause I’ll find my way
You’ll wake up one day
But it will be too late

Every little thing that you say or do
I’m hung up
I’m hung up on you
Waiting for your call
Baby night and day
I’m fed up
I’m tired of waiting on you

Every little thing that you say or do
I’m hung up
I’m hung up on you
Waiting for your call
Baby night and day
I’m fed up
I’m tired of waiting on you.

  1. Hey, cool blog you’ve got here! I’m visiting via your comment on “Bex & the City.” Feel free to check out my blog at http://philabramson.blogspot.com. Maybe you can help me out as I’m trying to build up my own running stamina!

  2. i LOVE gingerbread lattes! i had a pumpkin spice latte the other day. i love those too. my park has also recently turned off the water fountains. i love running in the fall and winter outside but this is big blow in light of fact i’m not the best hydrater anyway. i feel your pain.
