One thing I’ve noticed this summer is that I’ve been more active. I don’t think I’d be this active without Milo. These days walking from Joe’s place in Flatbush to his mom’s in Park Slope, a 4 mile roundtrip jaunt, isn’t too daunting. It helps that we go through Prospect Park and its beautiful scenery along the way. The walking has paid off and I feel like I’ve toned up a bit more and kept off most of the weight from the South Beach Diet (hey, I like my summertime ribs!). Today as part of our goal to keep active, Milo, Joe and I went to the dog beach. It was a great day post-Hannah and everybody in BK was taking advantage of it by going to Prospect Park.
For the blog readers who are not familiar w/ the park, Prospect Park is Central Park’s slightly younger sister designed by the same architects – Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux. Some say that Prospect was the pair’s masterpiece because they were able to incorporate more nature into the park compared to other city parks they designed, including Central Park. If you ever get a chance to visit Prospect Park, particularly the trails, you’d never think you were just moments away from bustling Flatbush Avenue. It’s one of my favorite places in the city and of course, Milo is in tow.
