Henry and I took a ride on Metro-North yesterday. We visited my old friend Sara Ingrassia. I met Sara when I posted an ad for a running partner while training for the NYC Marathon in 2004. It’s hard to believe we have known each other for ten years. Finding a good running partner is hard, but finding one that turns into a friend outside of running is even harder. We spent many early mornings in Central Park together and often reminisce about it when we see each other. Sara and her husband, Brian, moved to Connecticut after the birth of their first son.
Henry was well behaved on the train and had a great time at Sara’s. She has three boys (Luca, Noah, and Sebastian) so needless to say, there were plenty of toys to keep him entertained. I was happy to talk to another mom and catch up with an old friend.
