Not talking about "that age" between childhood and teenage-hood, where the eye-rolling happens at breakneck speed for every adult uncool utterance. It's the time between Spring and Summer. I feel like it's a standstill time right now. Everyone's energy is low, we seem to need extra sleep, are dragging our heels a little bit before the razzamatazz of the summer months. The great summer movies haven't been released yet.
Summer, as we all know, can be exhilarating and exhausting! There is so much to do! Weekends away, Shakespeare, Opera & movies in the park, drinks on the roofs of swank bars, picnics and beaches and running, running, running!
We are coming out of hibernation from a long winter. With a little trepidation, I unpack my summer wardrobe, shake out those flip flops and the giant sun hat. Time to stock up on the 45 spf with Helioplex and Full Spectrum YadaYada..
I will consider the Brooklyn Half on May 30th the beginning of summer. What is more summer-like than ending a race at Coney Island, eating a Nathan's hot dog and riding the Cyclone till you puke?
