Random Facts Friday

I did it again. I foam rolled. I planked. I stretched. I know, I specifically said I was not going to do these things, but sometimes they just happen. I dragged myself out of bed for a spin class this morning, and I got there painfully early to make sure I signed up for a […]

Thankful Things Thursday: A New Year!

OK I’m done with all the “It’s a New Year, resolutions, celebrations, happy, joy, seasons of love!” posts. I swear. I just like that the start of a new year brings a lot of potential and optimism and all that jazz. I haven’t done jazz hands in a while. That’s sad for me. But instead […]

Measuring My Year In Sweat

I don’t know if you know this, but I think sweating is cool. While some people measure their years in how much they achieved, or in daylights or sunsets or midnights or cups of coffee (RENT? Anyone? No. OK.), I prefer to look back on my year and assess how much I perspired. After all, […]

My 2011 Resolutions: Mostly Successful!

I love New Year’s Resolutions. Like seriously adore them. I get to make a bunch of goals in list form — what in the world is better than that? And then I have an entire year to accomplish them. It’s a brilliant concept, really. So how did I do with my 2011 New Year’s Resolutions? […]

A Little Soul To Start My Day

Last night I wanted to do something involving sweat. But my legs felt like they had been filled with lead and beaten with several sticks, and I was sugar crashing hard. So instead of spinning or yoga-ing or something along those lines, I decided to sit on my couch and eat candy. Though, in between […]

Thankful Things Thursday: Happy Holidays!

It seemed like practically everyone on the subway this morning had big bags filled with wrapped gifts and massive suitcases in tow. When I say “in tow” I mean “thanks for running over my big toe with your giant bag, bitch.” Whoa. That escalated quickly, and I’m sorry. My toes are all just fine, despite […]

Q & A

You know what phrase kind of skeeves me out? “Burning questions.” I don’t know why. I just think it’s a little gross. I have a friend who shudders whenever she hears the phrase “reared its ugly head.” Brianne, I hope you’re not reading today. Sorry about that. First, because I blog about running and things, […]

In today’s edition of Thankful Things Thursday, I will tell you about all the things I’m feeling thankful for. It’s basically the same as every other Thursday, in which I do the same thing. So come along, let’s […]

Give Me Your Mantras

I was a brat yesterday. I can admit that. I’m not proud of my pissy little blog post. I’m over it today. Yay! Thanks for talking some sense into me, friends. I really do appreciate it. I was all bent out of shape because oh no, I had a run that was kind of difficult. […]

Thankful Things Thursday: On My Ever-Expanding Family

Warning: I’m in a wicked good mood today. Yeah. Wicked — because I’m from New Hampshire. You cannot take that word away from me, no matter how far from that 603 area code I happen to live. Good thing it’s Thankful Things Thursday. I’m thankful for biscotti. How had I never tried this delicious treat […]
