Uncharacteristic Things I Did This Weekend

This weekend was wonderful in all the weirdest ways. Did I do all my usual things, like running and eventually showering and eating a lot? Yes, yes I did. But I also did many other things that are a bit out of character for me. Now I will tell you all about those things. I […]

Marathon Envy

Today is the Boston Marathon. You know that by now, right? Well, I’m obsessed. I wish I could be in Boston today cheering on all of the amazing, inspiring runners. I never thought twice about the Boston Marathon until this year. Up until a few months ago, I had no desire to even run a […]

The Best Investment

Today has all the makings of a great day. Want to know why? Well first of all, it’s Friday. Isn’t that reason enough to be happy? Fine. I’ll give you more reasons… I woke up this morning with a nasty cough. Yes, it’s sexy. But the upside to having this cough is that every time […]


I am completely blown away by all of the amazing comments, emails, messages and Tweets I received yesterday in response to my post about the breakup/moving situation. I feel incredibly lucky and blessed to have so many people in my life who care about me — and I’m even more humbled by the fact that […]

10 Things For Today

I woke up this morning and decided it’s going to be a great day. The sun is out, the weather is going to hit 40 degrees (sad how excited I am about that) and there’s plenty to be happy about. As you know, few things in life make me happier than lists. So in honor […]

Returning To The Routine

Mondays in general aren’t necessarily the most fun days. But Mondays following awesome long weekends are particularly rough. I’d much rather be sitting on my couch catching up on missed DVR (while wearing my new race medal, of course) than sitting at the office. Oh well! If you’re getting caught up, here’s what you missed […]

Thankful Things Thursday: Purple Edition

It’s Thursday. You know what that means. I’m really only calling this the Purple Edition because I’m wearing a purple dress today. The dress is Diane Von Furstenburg and I bought it several years ago. I rarely wear it because it fits sort of weird. I wanted to wear a dress today, but since the […]

Rabbit, Rabbit, Rabbit

When I was in kindergarten, Mrs. Forgiel taught us all that you should always say “Rabbit, Rabbit, Rabbit” on the first day of every month. It brings you good luck for the following 28–31 days. It’s a habit I have stuck with for the past, oh, 20 years? Maybe it’s habit, but maybe it’s superstition. […]

Running For My Sanity

The other day, Jess at Fit Chick in the City posted a great question on her blog: Why do you run? Most days I run because it’s just what I do. I wake up, I suit up and I run. I don’t question it. I run because I like to start my day outside. The […]

Epic Sunrise, Favorite Outfit

First of all, thank you for all of your wonderful comments on last night’s “Sad Ali” post. Your responses cheered me up quite a bit! Second of all, shout out to ABS. Today is his birthday! Any guesses on how old he is? We’re going out to dinner tonight at Abe & Arthur’s, which should […]
