My Marathon Training Must-Haves

Now that marathon training is ramping up, I find myself constantly turning to the same few, tried-and-true items I swear by when it comes to running. I’m a pretty firm believer that we as humans — especially in 2016 — have found a million and one ways to over-complicate the sport. There are so many […]

Hey. What’s Up? Hello!

Yesterday, I called to make an appointment to get a spray tan — my first spray tan ever, very reluctantly — because I have a bad case of “summer running” on my back and my wedding dress is not, in fact, in the shape of a Lululemon Cool Racerback top. The nice woman on the […]

HOKA ONE ONE Clifton 2 Giveaway!

I don’t remember when I went for my last run. I probably have it written down somewhere, but I know looking at it and seeing just how long it’s been will make me sad. What I don’t know can’t hurt me quite as much. So yeah. I’m still sick. Crohnsing hard. I’ve been to the […]

Feel-Good Friday

Now this is the story all about how my wedding dress got twist-turned upside down. Now I’d like to take a minute, just sit right there, I’ll tell you about the time my dress would barely zip over my butt. Yeah. That happened. I have spent the past, oh, six months being nervous about my […]

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! […]

My Airbnb Brooklyn Half Marathon Hopes, Dreams, Goals, & Thanks

I have run the Brooklyn Half Marathon once before. It was 2011, and I had just started training for my first marathon. I was in the best shape of my life. I was fast, fit, strong, and confident. The Brooklyn Half Marathon that year was in no way a goal race. I had just PR’d […]

MORE/FITNESS/SHAPE Half Marathon Recap

On Sunday, I ran my first race since November. On Monday, I watched (obsessed over) the Boston Marathon. Now, it’s Monday night, and I have hidden my debit card — which is new, so I have not yet memorized the number, thank goodness — to prevent me from registering for 26.2 marathons in the next […]

The Best Things In The World

Hi! I had some serious writer’s block last week. And the week before that. I was so sad about the 40 Days program ending. I came out of the program feeling so strong and so much better at yoga. Then I was busy, then I was traveling, then I was more busy. So after 40 […]
