One time, I ran a sixteen-mile race in Central Park. It was a good run. Afterwards, I was excited that soon, I would be at the counter window at Zabar’s (2245 Broadway at 80th Street, New York, NY 10024). I would order the Zabar’s NY Original Toasting Bagel with Vegetable Cream Cheese, and a large Columbian Blend Coffee.
Ten minutes later, I was about to open the door when an urbane lady said, “Miss, excuse me, but I see you are a runner. What else do you to stay in shape?”
“What else?” I said. “I walk a lot—thanks.” She headed farther south, I stepped into Zabar’s.
Finally, I was sitting, eating, and thinking about the unexpected compliment. I pondered: “At home, I do two things, three times a week: a workout video and yoga.”
Therefore, my Gotham Scoop for 2012 is: Land Yoga and Joel Harper’s Fitness DVD.
