Double take


My runs through Central Park are always entertaining- people watching, dog watching, music listening..but today's run was extra fun! I was running my regular loop when I saw some large groups of people ahead. One guy turned toward me with a giant camera and pointed it my way..I thought it was a bunch of tourists taking pics of anything and everything in the park..haha. Anyway, I was then asked by a random guy to run on the other side of the road. As I moved to the other side of the street I started noticing tents, lights and more cameras around. There right across the street from me were two ladies running with a camera crew filming right along with them. I took a closer look and it was Anne Hathaway and Kate Hudson!! I was so excited but just kept chugging along not wanting to make a scene. I then started to question the stars I had just seen so I decided to take another loop and see if I could get in on more of the action. Anyway, 15 min later I got around to the same spot and no one asked me to move to the other side.. so I ran right on through.. right on through the movie set. Right there in front of me about 4 ft away... Anne and Kate! I wanted to give the Devil Wears Prada star and girl that's kissed Matthew McConaughey a shout out but the huge guy in black standing next to them staring me down convinced me not to. :) Anyway, I looked up what movie the two of them are in and it looks like it'll be a fun chick flick coming out next year.

It was a fun little celebrity sighting and good motivation to run the 2 loops! :)
