From Somewhere In Manhattan .....

Toby watches the NYC marathon.
This is the neighborhood Toby lives in.
These are some of the runners that
Toby watches.
How I wish I were there.
I love the marathon.
I am amazed that anyone can run more than 5 city blocks.
It would all but kill me.
I might be able to walk the marathon,
but somehow I don't think anyone will still be hanging around 
by the time I would finish.
I would stop for a nice lunch 
and I would be hard pressed not to go shopping 
while walking passed all the superb shops.
for sure I would finish the race 
holding many shopping bags.
If I finished at all.
Would you?
Could you do the NYC Marathon?

...back to retail hell for 2 more days 'till my retail weekend.
I am off thurs. & fri

  1. No, me toppled over the Marc Jacobs bag is more my speed. I have been hitting the treadmill more, though. Does that count? :)

  2. The closest I will ever get to the NY marathon is watching......happy weekend when it does arrive...xv

  3. While smoking an unfiltered camel and drinking an iced grande skim latte? You know it!

  4. I barely manage the frantic lope around the ring dragging a reluctant dog behind me so.....I don't think so!

  5. Well, no I couldn't do it. Maybe if we trained for it for a year, huh?!

    Thanks for finding me through Millie! Love your blog..I've joined up so I can come again! :)

  6. i guess anything is possible... but i chose no. i will shop and have lunch with you my friend..xx

  7. If I manage my 20 minute treadmill and weights, I am worn out. I saw a running race in Florence Italy once.
    Even met 2 american runners, they were really in shape.

  8. Renee are you serious, no I will be walking along shopping, like you!

  9. No way!! I'd rather go shopping and for lunch; besides..., running on hard pavement is bad for the knees, haha!

  10. i would have a heart attack, all my bad habits would taunt me and then i could not take it and my heart would go into a frenzy.
    shopping, lunch? i'm there!

  11. I don't see a marathon in my future but I certainly admire those who attempt it. As the others run, I'm sure you and I will bump into each other shopping!

  12. okay ladies....

    i think we have a nice group here
    to meet up for lunch and shopping!


  13. Every time I read your blog I have a smile..honestly because you & I are wayyyyyyy too much a like. I am nor ever will be a runner, just wasn't built for it. I too would want to stop & peek in the shop windows. I would wear running shoes but only for sprinting into a store for a sale!!

    Thanks for the giggle, I needed that.

    Love ya toots xo xo



Thanks for participating!!

About Renée Finberg

I have been in this business since the age of 22.

Design Challenges are great.

And because of those challenges

I have imported fine antique pieces from Paris,

Designed and Manufactured Furniture,

Created Fantastic Window Treatments,

And solved all kinds of spatial & architectural issues

With my unique style.

Just Great Design.

Just imagine how it would be if each of us,

If only for a few hours of everyday,We could be in a space that is our very own.A place that is exactly the way we want it to be

Surrounded by all the things we wanted to see,

The atmosphere we wanted feel, smell and the sound we wanted to listen to.
