Last Chance For Sweat

All “I Heart Sweat” shirts have been marked down. Long-sleeved shirts are now $35. Short-sleeved shirts are going for $25. Whatever’s left on the website is what I have left. If you see the size you want in the drop-down menu, that means I have it. Hooray! It’s yours! If it’s not there, it’s sold […]

“I Heart Sweat” Shirt Giveaway Winners

A [much much] longer post is on the way with all kinds of information about my life, like how sometimes after I give myself Humira shots I can’t really breathe for the rest of the day, but also happy things like how I had a few days of feeling mostly decent. In the meantime, because […]

Embrace The Sweat (An “I Heart Sweat” Shirt Giveaway!)

I’m glad I got to write two ultra-happy posts in a row, because since then things have begun to deteriorate. Again. The past week has been a rough one filled with many many embarrassingly frantic bathroom runs (shout-outs to the Starbucks on 96th Street, the tennis court bathrooms in Central Park, the tennis court bathrooms […]

Thankful Things Thursday: Gettin’ Perky With It

I hate myself for writing that title. And yet…I did it anyway. Will Smith, I hope you’re proud. Here’s the thing about today: I need a hefty dose of Thankful Things Thursday. Sometimes, as I mentioned a few weeks ago, this day feels slightly contrived, slightly forced, slightly obvious. But on days when I’m grumpy, […]

Thankful Things Thursday: The Magic Of The Holiday Season

It’s been an emotional few days, huh? In the wake of the Newtown tragedy, I can’t decide if it feels trite to put on a peppy, thankful face (let’s be honest, my “thankful things” are hardly deep thoughts and are usually simple, silly things), or if that’s exactly what I should be doing right now. […]

Loving Not Running

So if you’re thinking the perfect present for your aunt, uncle, cousin, sister, brother or Jewish step-cousin is a sweat-loving piece of Dry-Fit, I suggest you get on it. Click here to […]

So Much Sweat!

Don’t let the title fool you. There’s not a lot of sweat happening in my mangled world right now. I actually feel a little better-ish today. My right hip is a slightly less swollen and the pain and soreness isn’t so bad. And I have something to show you: I told you there were more […]

Take My Sweat (It’s A Giveaway & It’s Not Gross)

Do you know what I want so badly right now? I want to use my damn mango soap. Back in June, I was interviewed by Women’s Running magazine (no, I don’t know why they wanted to talk to me, either — probably because 8:30 miles are the new “elite” status), and the nice ego-boosting people […]

Marathon On My Mind

Good morning! Today I have Marathon Training Brain, so that’s what we’re going to talk about. In December of last year, I finally “qualified” for the 2012 New York City Marathon. I ran nine New York Road Runners races, I volunteered at the New York City Marathon Expo, and I was finally — as the […]
