A Twister in NYC and Are YOU Game???

It has been a crazy couple of days….some good and some bad but all memorable! I am sure most of you heard that we had a Tornado in NYC on Thursday. Right before the tornado struck I was enjoying some of this with my family…

We then headed to our car and got stuck in the heart of the tornado! The car kept swaying and the lightning and thunder were horrific…I remember my niece crying out “let it be a nightmare…let it be a nightmare” and once it cleared up this is what all around us…

Thankfully we were not injured…I think God or my grandmother was watching over us…
But like I said there were also some good things this weekend including Women’s Health Magazine “Are You Game” Event which I attended with Missy!
Before we could get to the event, we had to wait for these Harleys to get through…

We finally made it to the park and it was a wonderful day for some outdoor activities!

And one of the best things about living in NYC is bumping into friends!!!!! We both met Sandy during the IntenSati Challenge!
This turned out to be a good event and we enjoyed ourselves even though we did not participate in the workouts…but we DID take a 1 hour walk to go on our special “date”. A lot of you guys might remember that Missy and I would always go to Whole Foods for din din during the IntenSati Challange, and I was missing my WF “fix”
We both were craving sushi…Spicy Shrimp Tempura Brown Rice Roll to be exact…
And we split a small bag of Stacy’s Chip…we needed something sweet to balance out the wasabi going up our nose! haha
And just when we thought our day could not get any better, we came across this baby…I am one of those people that just has to play with puppies…
Disclaimer: JUST because I HAVE to go inside pet stores to play with puppies does not mean I will purchase one…ADOPTION IS BEST! (had to say that since I got hammered on facebook when I mentioned that I was in there…calm down people!)
Great day (CHECK), Sushi (CHECK), Puppy Therapy (CHECK), AND GOODIE BAG! (CHECK!)
Before I go, here are some short videos that I took from the event…
Ohhhhh also my workouts are going great! I started week 8 of Turbo Fire today! AND I have been running/walking twice a week. My run ayer was a tad interesting because it turned into a obstacle course…Forest Park was hit hard on Thursday…I basically ran/walked/crawled/climbed/jumped during my “run”
Before the Tornado…
