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 […]

My New York City Marathon Playlist

Hey storm troopers! In true “the week before the New York  City Marathon” fashion (remember the freak Halloween Snowtober thing last year?), there’s a heck of a storm blazing through the area. Hurricane Sandy is here, and she’s crazy! But while the sideways rain and “don’t go up to your roof to watch or I’ll […]

Please Let Me Make Your Day (That Means A Giveaway!)

A rhyming title! I’ve been in weird, hazy funk this week. I don’t know if it’s the lack of running miles, the lack of sweating in general or the fact that instead of gunning for 8 hours of sleep a night, I’m cutting back on my shut-eye in favor of extra hours at the office. […]

The Run Before The Storm

I really thought today’s run was going to suck. That’s a good attitude to have, right? Coach Cane had me running 14 miles: the first 10 slower than my marathon goal pace (semi-success!) and the final four faster than my MGP (full success!). Fun fact: I ended up running 16 miles (my bad) and kind […]

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 […]

Everything About Today Will Be Great

It’s Friday, and that’s just the first reason today is going to be a stellar day leading into a phenomenal weekend. Positivity, people. Embrace it. This week went by really quickly for me. It was productive, it included some great workouts and it included quality time with great people. Unfortunately, this weekend also proved to […]

My First Outdoor Yoga Class

Not only did we all survive the week, we’re also officially into summer. Happy long weekend! I’m pretty pumped about the fact that my office is closing at 1 pm today. I’m even more pumped about the fact that I have no plans after that. …although I’m fairly certain 16 Handles will make an appearance […]

It’s Kind Of Easy Being Green

Kermit was right. So today is Earth Day. I think it’s great that there’s a day devoted to taking care of the Earth, though I feel similarly about this “holiday” as I do about Thanksgiving. We only honor it once a year? That’s silly. I’ll be honest: I’m not the most “green” person in the […]

Fun Fall Fitness

I’m so excited because I have a few fun fitness-y things to look forward to in the next few weeks. First, I’m finally taking my first hot yoga class! Pure Yoga in NYC is offering free classes this weekend—Happy Thanksgiving, yogis!—and I was lucky enough to secure a spot in the Saturday afternoon Hot Power […]

Bummer

Sad face. So I wasn’t lucky enough to be one of the first 50 people to get into the 2011 NYC Marathon. There will be another lottery drawing in April, which of course feels decades away! Until then I’ll obviously keep running as I have been (7 miles this morning—love that it’s light out again!). […]
