The 10 Best Parts of My Week

This was such a good week! Did you have a good week?! I am fired up. If you listened to this week’s podcast episode, you could probably tell. I’m just in a really good mood. I’ve been listening to a lot of this… And also watching this, and crying while also getting all pumped up… […]

This Week

Hi! I’m happy to be back in my routine! Christmas already feels like it was months ago. It’s nice to be home, unpacked, laundry-ed, settled, and back into a groove of sorts. Brian was traveling for the first part of this week — with the car — so Annie, Ellie, and I were mostly house-bound, […]

Why I Stopped Blogging — And Why I’m Back

Please enjoy all the wonderful throwback photos in this post! I started blogging here on October 2, 2010. It was a Saturday, and I’d just returned from my longest run ever: 13.3 miles around the southern tip of Manhattan. I didn’t even know it was my longest run ever until I returned to my midtown […]

The Sunday Bath

The Sunday Bath

I originally wrote this on December 15 — on paper! In a beautiful new notebook! And I decided to share it here, now. Six and a half years ago, my friend Abby Bales gave me an inflatable bath pillow from The Body Shop. It was part of an incredibly thoughtful care package she sent during […]

Life Lately

Hi! I really miss daily blogging! It’s not something I can sustain right now (and hasn’t been for a while), but I do miss it. And maybe someday soon I’ll get back into a routine here. And today, since I knocked out a workout before everyone was awake and was back home before Annie opened […]

I Love Love

Adidas

I love Valentine’s Day. I feel like it’s not cool to unabashedly love Valentine’s Day. “It’s a Hallmark holiday,” the people say. I don’t know who “the people” are, but I feel like that’s what they say. That it’s cheesy. It’s forced. It’s too much pink. But do you know what I love? Cheese. Love. […]

Q&A

Q&A

Remember five days ago when Instagram decided to enable the “Questions” feature on Instagram Stories? That was fun! At least for a few minutes, right? I got so many good questions, but fun fact about me (and, I imagine, many people?) is that I hate typing on my phone. I basically only respond to text messages […]

33

I turn 33 on Sunday! Brian asked what I wanted to do for my birthday this year, and I said “not make any decisions all day.” (That’s honestly my dream in life, too.) So I don’t know what we’ll be up to this weekend, but I’m excited to make him choose all my meals for […]

Boston Marathon Inspiration & The Women I Admire

Watching Desi Linden win the Boston Marathon yesterday was amazing. When she broke the tape, she became the first American woman in my lifetime to win the Boston Marathon. And Desi deserved it. She’s a fighter. She’s a workhorse. And she’s always said her thing isn’t about a gimmick or flash. It’s about putting her […]

Rainy Day Thoughts

Rainy Day Thoughts

Hi! I hate talking about the weather but also I’m really bummed out about the weather lately. The cold I can handle. It’s the constant gray, sad, overcast skies. Everything is dreary. It’s hard to motivate. And while working from home is great on these days because I don’t have to navigate my way through seas umbrella-armed […]
