Q & A

You know what phrase kind of skeeves me out? “Burning questions.” I don’t know why. I just think it’s a little gross. I have a friend who shudders whenever she hears the phrase “reared its ugly head.” Brianne, I hope you’re not reading today. Sorry about that. First, because I blog about running and things, […]

The Reason I’m Running The Las Vegas Half

I leave for Las Vegas in four days. I’ve been excited about this trip for a long time. Not only will I be running the Las Vegas Half Marathon on Sunday evening (attempting to PR — have I mentioned that?), I’ll also be out there with my nice friend Brian — it’s his half marathon […]

I Am A Marathoner: The Official Hamptons Marathon Recap

Wow. This weekend has been insane. I hope you’re in the mood for a lengthy post because that’s what you’re about to get. In case you’re quite busy, let me summarize my weekend for you: I ran my first marathon. I had the best cheering section in the world. I came in second place in […]

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, […]

Humbled

I’m almost at a loss for words this morning. I don’t think I’ve ever really been completely knocked speechless — I’m a big fan of talking and making noise — but last night blew me away. I woke up with a giant, totally goofy smile on my face today. Let me try to find the […]

A Kick In The Butt

I told myself I would get more sleep this week. So far: Fail. Really big fail. I’m running on 4 hours of sleep and I’m going to go ahead and say it was totally worth it. Did I was my hair this morning? No. But I got it wet and blow-dried it and that’s about […]

I Have A Great Feeling About Today

It’s a good day. Who’s with me? You can complain about the heat all you want, but I know I’m not going to let a little upper lip sweat during my morning commute bring me down. What? You don’t get that, too? It’s sexy. Let me tell you a few things that are great right […]

Thankful Things Thursday: The Good In People

Have I told you lately that I love you? Rod Stewart knows what’s up. That is a Rod Stewart song, right? But seriously. When I wrote yesterday’s post about how “Crohn’s Disease is a dirty bitch” I was basically just venting my current frustrations with this beast of a disease. I had no idea it […]

Thankful Things Thursday: Making A Bad Day Good

I woke up this morning ridiculously happy for many reasons: I had a great night last night that was equal parts fun and productive. I painted my toenails, baked a dessert for this weekend, cleaned and put together my new (used) coffee table, and then I had dinner and drinks with a friend. I wasn’t […]
