Let’s Talk About Sweat & Stress

Before I get into the few things I have to say this morning, I need to start this post with an urgent question: Ladies and gentlemen, how the heck do you survive in the summer without being a sweaty mess? I’m not kidding. Answer me, because I need to know. The high in NYC today […]

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.

It’s a habit I have stuck with for the past, oh, 20 years? Maybe it’s habit, but maybe it’s superstition. […]

My First Garmin Run!
