Thankful Things Thursday: Embracing The Rain & A Giveaway Winner

It’s another rainy day in NYC, but I predict the sun will come out this afternoon. I’m obviously a skilled meteorologist, so you should go ahead and trust my conviction. In addition to gloomy weather, today also brings along another edition of Thankful Things Thursday. If you’re new, here’s how we play: I list all […]

Thankful Things Thursday: Run Survival

So far I’m not too impressed with Thursday. I was beyond exhausted when I woke up, my stomach is giving me hell and it took three subway transfers to get to the office. I could let myself be cranky. That would be fun. I’d be punching people by 10 am. Orrrrrrr… I could give myself […]

Black & White & Rainy All Over

My body is hurting today! Turns out, marathon training — even in the early weeks — is kind of hard. After yesterday’s stellar run, I proceeded to sit at a desk all day. I prefer a more active recovery, but what can you do? I have to pay my bills. I did enjoy a lovely […]

Sometimes I Think I Can Do Anything

Oh hello, Tuesday. First, thank you all so much for the creative, original lunch ideas yesterday. For the first time maybe ever, I’m excited to go grocery shopping and stock up on some fun lunch things. You rock. I am grateful. Today I would like to talk about a thing I like to call “Exercising […]

I Actually Hate Talking About The Weather

Hey hey hey! It’s raining in NYC — and it’s supposed to rain all week. So get ready for lots of “Oh my gosh, can you believe it’s still raining?” conversations in the elevator. People love talking about the weather. But there’s plenty of other stuff to talk about today. In case you’re behind, allow […]

Last night I took two Tylenol PM tablets and spritzed my nose with a whole lotta Afrin nasal spray. Then I gave myself the morning off from working out. I swear, I woke up a new person today. Now I’m not going to jump to conclusions and say I’m cured, but I do feel so […]

Welcome, Spring!

Good morning! It’s officially spring, and although the sun isn’t out and the air isn’t warm, I’m still excited to know that nicer days are on the way. This weekend we definitely got a glimpse of the changing seasons. If you missed out on anything, here’s how I spent the past few days: I stayed […]

Misty Morning Run

I went to bed last night knowing it would probably be raining when I woke up. And it was—drizzling, at least. But that didn’t stop me from lacing up my shoes and wearing my “rain appropriate” running clothes. Whenever it rains, I wear my NYC 1/2 Marathon dry-fit shirt. It’s more breathable when it gets […]
