Throwback Thankful Things Thursday!

Do you remember Thankful Things Thursday?! I swear I’m still a good, honest, grateful person (well, most days). I just don’t do such a good, honest, grateful job of writing about my thankfulness. Today that. all. changes. Today is the triumphant return of my beloved Thankful Things Thursday. Without further blah blah, here we go! […]

What I’ve Been Up To Lately

Hi! I’ve missed you. Life lately has been busy. And hot. And now rainy. And mostly good. In lieu of an organized, beautifully coherent post, here instead is a mass roundup of “My Life Lately.” Consider it a highlight reel. I “starred” (ha) in a Mets commercial. Two Mets commercials, actually! I played the part […]

Hawaii Part I: Oahu

A note before we get started: Thank you thank you thank you thank you for all the love and wonderfully kind comments on my last post and on Instagram. My mom is worried that I’m “going to want to invite everyone who liked my photos or commented on my post to the wedding.” And she […]

Back in May, when I was in “Desperately Seeking Doctor” mode, Jess called me to help me out with my quest […]

A Letter To My Lexa

Dear Bike, We had a rough go together on Sunday, huh? And yesterday I lashed out on you a bit. I found my harshest words, my cruelest thoughts, and I swore never to spend time with you again. I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have jumped to such a drastic conclusion regarding my cycling career and our […]

Filling The Barn

As I tapered for the Hamptons Marathon last year, many people kept repeating the same phrase to me: The hay is in the barn. Personally, I think this phrase is stupid. Hay? Barns? How are these things related to marathon training? And also, WTF are you talking about? But as always, these seasoned runners, triathletes […]

The Plan

Hi! How are you on this Tuesday morning? Good. Great. I’m psyched for you. Now, we could discuss one of two things today: The latest in my Crohn’s flare-up saga, including an update on how yesterday’s doctor appointment went. Running. All those in favor of #2? That’s the correct choice. Running! I’m into Week 2 […]
