NYC Eco-Celeb Sighting: Jennifer Connelly

Today is World Environment Day, and it’s breezy, sunny and 79-degrees in New York. I went running in Prospect Park, braving the sun in attempt to train for an upcoming 10K. Just as I was approaching mile 6, I heard someone coming up behind me. I politely made room for him/her on my left, and then stole a look to see who it was. It was Jennifer Connelly! I was so psyched to see her (I’ve wanted to be her ever since Labyrinth) that I kept pace with her for a while, silently enjoying the winding roads of the park.

Unfortunately, she’s in way better shape than me and started kicking my butt so I had to let her pass. But I love that she was running in the park, instead of patronizing some high-security, aggressively air-conditioned gym. Way to save energy and enjoy the natural world during your workout! (As close as we can get to “natural” in Brooklyn, anyway.)

Maybe she was just celebrating World Environment Day, but I have a feeling that running in the park is part of her normal routine.
