Work, Run, Eat, Repeat…And Ride

When I was trying to come up with a pithy title for this blog, I did some “inspirational research.” Basically, I looked up a ton of other blogs to see what their clever titles were, hoping something brilliant would pop into my brain. That is called osmosis. Or not. I didn’t do so well in […]

No News Is Great News

I wasn’t going to blog today. Again. Not long ago, I made a promise that if I had nothing to say, I’d keep my mouth shut. Or I’d stop my fingers from typing. Whatever. But then I realized: It’s kind of a good thing that I’m not dying to pour my heart out or divulge […]

On Being Full-Out

Today we are going to talk about being “full-out,” which is not to be confused with “Full House.” Because in real life, going full-out means being balls-to-the-wall and, as my spin instructor this morning said, “not bullshitting it.” (I wanted to make that the title of this post, but I thought my mom might be […]

Strong Is Sexy

Last night I took a Chisel class at the gym. I hadn’t been to class — or done any quality strength training — for a few weeks. I was convinced all my hard-earned strength would be lost and I envisioned myself begrudgingly downgrading from my 8-pound dumbbells to the 7-pounders. But hey! That didn’t happen! […]

This Week Was Easy

Not only is today Friday, it’s the Friday following an awesome week and it’s the Friday leading up to a mostly plan-free weekend. Life is good, don’t you think? This week has been great, though it’s been a total whirlwind. I was up at 4 am yesterday to catch a flight from Orlando back to […]

Thankful Things Thursday: Winding Down From Disney

I didn’t forget that today is Thursday. I’m just way late in posting due to traveling. At 4 am, when my alarm went off, I wasn’t feeling very thankful. But I am now, so let’s get to it. Here’s what I’m thankful for on this very lovely Thursday… I’m thankful for the amazing trip I […]

I Don’t Want To Leave Orlando

This will be my last “I’m having the best time ever in Florida” post. I promise. I have to go back to NYC on a very early flight tomorrow. The trip has been pretty great. Today was a total work day (though it did start out with a 4-mile run and a jump straight into […]

Happy National Running Day!

I’m sure by now you’ve heard: Today is National Running Day! I love that runners get a holiday, and I love that we celebrate it by doing what we do best: lacing up and hitting the road, trail or treadmill. Of course, it would be nice if we also got the day off to take […]

The Perfect Day Off

Today has been awesome. I hope if you had the day off from work/school/life, your day was fabulous as well. I started my day off with a 7+ mile run in frigid Central Park. I got to give my new Garmin a spin and though the run wasn’t easy, I am so glad I did […]
