|Greetings from Coney Island - Wonder Wheel, Astrotower, and Cyclone.|
|I was going to run to the eastern end of Coney Island's Boardwalk, but it was closed. The sweater is from a NYRR 25K and 4-Miler race and the cap is from a NYRR NYC Marathon, both from the 1990s.|
If you'd like to join others in a run, check out this event on the 21st:
