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 […]

My Penchant For Overdoing It

It has been one month since The Greatest Day Ever. One month ago I ran the Hamptons Marathon. It was, without a doubt, my favorite thing I have ever done and I think about it (and, as you know, post photos of it) every single day. As if I needed further reminders of that great […]

Noteworthy Numbers

I’ve got numbers on the brain today. For example, 10:30. That’s what time I left the office last night. I wasn’t thrilled, but I can’t complain too much. My job rarely requires me to stay at the office past 5:30ish, so one late night isn’t the end of the world. (And 6 is the number […]

Thankful Things Thursday: Embracing The Rain & A Giveaway Winner

It’s another rainy day in NYC, but I predict the sun will come out this afternoon. I’m obviously a skilled meteorologist, so you should go ahead and trust my conviction. In addition to gloomy weather, today also brings along another edition of Thankful Things Thursday. If you’re new, here’s how we play: I list all […]

Bloggers Are Better In Real Life

Fact: Being real-life friends with fellow bloggers makes my world better. Why’s that, you ask? Well, many of my blogger friends are food bloggers. That means they like to cook and sometimes it means they like to cook for me. Since the most impressive thing I make is pasta (from the box) with sauce (unheated, […]

Taper To-Do List

You know what’s awesome? Four day work weeks. You know what’s not awesome? I had my first marathon nightmare last night. I didn’t have a place to stay the night before the race, and then when I finally got a room it was in a sketchy basement of some weird dorm and then some other […]

Thankful Things Thursday: This Better Cheer Me Up

During this morning’s semi-rough run (8 miles, two bathroom stops), I kept thinking about the fact that is not only the first day of September, it’s also Thankful Things Thursday. I cursed myself for creating this little “holiday” and was all, “I have nothing to be thankful for today, life is so hard, my stomach […]

Don’t Fear The Running Buddy (Plus A Giveaway!)

I talk to runners all the time who are “afraid” of running with other people. And you see, I can relate: I used to be one of those runners. When I started running in 2008, I lived with a runner. Her name: Meghan. She had run several half marathons at the time and you would […]

Rabbit, Rabbit, Rabbit

When I was in kindergarten, Mrs. Forgiel taught us all that you should always say “Rabbit, Rabbit, Rabbit” on the first day of every month. It brings you good luck for the following 28–31 days. It’s a habit I have stuck with for the past, oh, 20 years? Maybe it’s habit, but maybe it’s superstition. […]

A Perfect Day For Sweatpants

This morning I posted my “Weekend To-Do List.” Let’s just say I accomplished…some of the things I needed/wanted to. Honestly, on days like today — wet, gloomy, rainy, cold — To-Do lists should be thrown out the window. But of course, I’m much too crazy for that. So here’s how today went down (wonderfully — […]
