The trip was great. Wicked was a wonderful choice of Broadway play for our group that included 11 people, ages 12 to 71. It was a delightful production. We rode trains and subways from the Jersey shore to NYC with very little problem, which surprised me.
I really didn't have too much trouble finding healthy food options. I was glad I took my nonfat instant milk powder as the bed and breakfast where we stayed served whole milk. I did get my usual oatmeal every morning. I usually have some fruit in the morning, but I got more variety and even quality than I often have. I truly enjoyed time with extended family -- that was definitely the focus of this trip -- but I must admit I had a yummy Jersey Shore Bouillabaisse that I won't soon forget, either. Got plenty of exercise, including my training runs and miles of walking.
Glad to be home, though. Grandkids missed me and I missed them. Even though I managed to keep my healthy lifestyle going, it undoubtedly is easier at home.
