The Professor and I met outside of 7-Eleven at noon and took off towards the East River Esplanade.

We ran through Astoria, making a pit stop at the car wash so that I could use the restroom. My healthy breakfast of chicken and vegetables had come back to haunt me. Or maybe it was the pickleback shots from the evening before...
It's interesting to watch the people and neighborhoods change throughout this run. At about mile 5 (still in Astoria), we saw our first hipster. Brooklyn was full of them. Hipsters make me itch.
The Williamsburg Bridge was probably the coolest of the four bridges we ran on today.

The ascent of the bridge is pretty challenging with the wind, but the descent is awesome. I just trucked it the last mile downhill.
Right after I took this picture.
My Garmin satellites didn't catch until about .4 of a mile into the run, so I think I ran closer to 10.5 miles.
We had brunch at a place we passed called Donnybrook on the Lower Eastside. Brunch is $14 for a meal and THREE alcoholic beverages. Amazing.
