Serving Enormous Authentic Jewish Deli Food for Over Half a Century
Their website says, “Your Bubbie’s, but better”, and I couldn’t agree more. For those not up on Yiddish, a bubbie, pronounced buh-bee, is a Jewish grandmother, so 2nd Avenue Deli really touts how great their food is. You’ll notice that neither location is on 2nd Avenue, but the original ten-seat store in Greenwich Village was, so cut them some slack. Serving enormous authentic Jewish deli food for over half a century and very popular with early New York personalities, founder Abe’s nephews Josh and Jeremy continue the tradition of one of New York’s best restaurants.
I started running in 2013 at age 42. Since then, I’ve completed more than 20 marathons, 35 half marathons, three 50Ks (that’s 31 miles!). I’ve raced internationally in Angola, Brazil and Canada as well as throughout the U.S. I enthusiastically enjoy runs of all distances, including regular park runs in Maryland, my home base. I’m almost always at the back of the pack and love to speak to the DFL (Dead F’ing Last) experience. I’m a huge animal lover, I believe strongly in rescuing animals and finding them suitable homes. With so many worthy shelters, rescues and people involved in this cause, I urge my fellow runners to find their local rescue providers and support them in any way possible, whether this means by volunteering or financially or both! I’d also like to give a shout-out to a start-up coffee company, Quality Hill Coffee, which sources and roasts the best coffee I’ve ever had. The owner roasts-to-order and donates the proceeds to dog rescue.
