Thankful Things Thursday: For Basically Everything Ever

People say the worst feeling in the world is heartbreak. I say the worst feeling in the world is when you come in from a frigid run and jump into a scalding-hot shower too fast, and then your legs turn bright red and get all itchy. The second worst feeling is when you bite your […]

Thankful Things Thursday: Love

I’m here. I’m here! Maybe you thought I’d fled for a while and ditched this whole blogging thing. I thought about it, honestly. I took a few days off because I was busy before I left for Colorado. Then I was in Colorado and I refused to turn on my computer for the duration of […]

Thankful Things Thursday: On Forgetting What It Feels Like

Nothing kicks you out of a running slump quite like not being able to run. Especially when it’s 60 degrees in New York City — in January. For the past few weeks, I’ve been able to run, but I haven’t much felt like it. Now, naturally, I can’t run, and so I’m dying to. I […]

Thankful Things Thursday: Gettin’ Perky With It

I hate myself for writing that title. And yet…I did it anyway. Will Smith, I hope you’re proud. Here’s the thing about today: I need a hefty dose of Thankful Things Thursday. Sometimes, as I mentioned a few weeks ago, this day feels slightly contrived, slightly forced, slightly obvious. But on days when I’m grumpy, […]

Thankful Things Thursday: Kicking Off The New Year

I am sick. I know. Wahhhhh! My life is the absolute worst. No. Not really. Not at all. I just have a cold, and I’m handling it supremely well. I did not scream for Brian six times last night asking him to “bring me drugs,” “give me the good stuff,” “take my temp” and “fix […]

Thankful Things Thursday: The Magic Of The Holiday Season

It’s been an emotional few days, huh? In the wake of the Newtown tragedy, I can’t decide if it feels trite to put on a peppy, thankful face (let’s be honest, my “thankful things” are hardly deep thoughts and are usually simple, silly things), or if that’s exactly what I should be doing right now. […]

Thankful Things Thursday: On Having Crohn’s Disease

I mentioned the other day that this week is Crohn’s & Colitis Awareness Week. Now, if you’ve read this blog for longer than a day or two, you’re fully aware of Crohn’s disease. I like to think I’ve done my part to help spread awareness over the years, even if all the details along the […]

Thankful Things Thursday: Cold & Cheery

I somehow made it out of bed to run this morning. I am still cold. How did I do this for the last two winters? I remember running just about every morning last winter — always in shorts and the trusty legwarmers — and I don’t remember it being too dramatic. But it seems so […]

Thankful Things Thursday: Thanksgiving Edition

I’m currently sitting at my mom and dad’s house in New Hampshire, hanging out with all my favorite people and being entertained by my BFF Ty. As I sit here in my baggiest sweatpants, surrounded by great people and a plate of Oreos (I wrote half of this Wednesday night — though I’m certainly not […]

Thankful Things Thursday: Feel Good Friday Edition

A day late. My bad. Can we still get grateful though? Because I’m feeling it now more than ever. Ever, I tell you! And a Thankful Things Thursday by any other name — Feel Good Friday, perhaps? — is just as sweet. Or whatever that phrase is. You get it. Let’s do it. I’m thankful […]
