Moving Day

Today is the day I say goodbye to my home in Manhattan. It doesn’t feel that dramatic (or traumatic) yet. I’m sure it’ll sink in eventually, but it’s not like we’re fleeing the area completely. We’re actually going to be closer to midtown and downtown than we are now. My theory when it comes to moving […]

Thankful Things Thursday: Running & Puppies

I was in a pretty foul mood this morning. Life is so hard. I got to bed late last night, so I chose not to go to yoga this morning as planned. I was stressing over my schedule and trying to figure out how to get everything done on time, and then Ellie was being a […]

15 Things That Made Me Happy This Week

I’ve done a bit of soul searching this week. Not for any particular reason. Nothing’s wrong. Life’s just fine. Yay hooray! But I’ve been feeling more introspective than normal. (I blame this on the fact that I spend a lot of time walking my puppy — and therefore a lot of time with my thoughts, since she […]

Party Time: Our Wedding Reception!

All the wedding recaps in one place, because we live in an “In Case You Missed It” world… The Week The Stress The Prep The Ceremony And now: The Party!

Getting To Know Everything About You

I don’t think I’ve ever done one of these blog survey things. I’ve always had plenty to say on my own. But on this drizzly Tuesday morning, I feel like writing, and yet I’m suffering from a bit of writer’s block. (This does not bode well for a full-time freelance writer whose livelihood and, uh, […]

New York City Marathon 2015 Recap: From The #Mile7 Water Station

I have no voice, my whole body is sore, and I’m exhausted. I woke up yesterday with a slight hangover and a major urge to register for the next race I can find. It is officially the week after the New York City Marathon. Of course, I didn’t actually run the race this year. But […]

What I’ve Been Up To Lately

Hi! I’ve missed you. Life lately has been busy. And hot. And now rainy. And mostly good. In lieu of an organized, beautifully coherent post, here instead is a mass roundup of “My Life Lately.” Consider it a highlight reel. I “starred” (ha) in a Mets commercial. Two Mets commercials, actually! I played the part […]

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 […]

Puzzling Thoughts + I Tried Mile High Run Club (And Got You A Free Class!)

It’s February. It’s cold. Blahbiddyblah. I don’t mind the cold too much when it comes to running — I don’t belong to a gym so I have no treadmill access, nor do I have treadmill patience, and there’s something so special about coming home after a very cold run and taking a very hot shower. […]
