Coney Island Baby
Andrew ran 13.1 miles and ended up in Coney Island, so we decided to meet him there. The good news/bad news is that he ran so fast that we didn't get to catch him in action. Drat.
Finley hadn't been to this part of Brooklyn before. He's too little for all those crazy rides, to be sure, but I think he's reaching the point where he might appreciate the aquarium and maybe even a Cyclones game. Anyway, we'll have to take him back to really experience it. Someone was so desperate for a Nathan's hot dog that he waited in line for an hour and a half. An hour and a half for a hot dog after running 13.1 miles.
So yes, we saw very little of Coney Island, but quite a lot of Nathan's. Not the neighborhood's best side, I'll tell ya.
