Thankful Things Thursday: For Everything That Will Help Me Run A Marathon

It’s the last Thankful Things Thursday before the marathon. Dun dun dunnnn. It’s. So. Dramatic. I have so much to be grateful for today — everything from helpful humans to sweaty shirt sales to, as always, graph paper — so let’s get right into it. I’m thankful I live in a place where water is […]

Thankful Things Thursday: Sleep, Sweat Shirts & Marathon Movies

Hi. Good morning. I have a lot to be thankful for today so let’s not waste any time. I’m thankful for sleep. One of my marathon taper goals was to get more sleep. Apparently I decided to get all of it last night. I went to bed at 9:30 pm and woke up this morning […]

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: This Better Cheer Me Up

During this morning’s semi-rough run (8 miles, two bathroom stops), I kept thinking about the fact that is not only the first day of September, it’s also Thankful Things Thursday. I cursed myself for creating this little “holiday” and was all, “I have nothing to be thankful for today, life is so hard, my stomach […]

Thankful Things Thursday: New Sneakers, Thick Thighs & I Really Love Food

Hello. Today is Thursday. This week has been speedy. Probably because I was gallivanting around Fire Island on Monday and Tuesday instead of working. My feet are covered in bug bites. I’m not very excited about that. They’re itchy and swollen and keeping me up at night. I’d rather be sleeping than enduring a scratch-fest […]

Thankful Things Thursday: On Good Friends, Support & The Night Ahead

Hello. Happy Thursday. I’ve got a busy day, so we’re jumping right into the “This is what I’m thankful for today” game. I’m thankful the big day is finally here! For the past two nights, I’ve woken up from dreams in which no one shows up to my JackRabbit fundraising event. I really hope that […]

Thankful Things Thursday: Bono Is My Friend

Today is Thursday. It is Thankful Things Thursday. That means we will be thankful for things that we may otherwise dismiss every other day of the week. I am hungover and tired, so let’s get right to it, shall we? I’m thankful for live music and U2. Last night I went to the U2 concert […]

Thankful Things Thursday: Being On TV & Jazz Hands

I hope you’re in a good mood today. If you’re not, this post will either perk you up or piss you off. I hope it perks you up. I’m in an excellent mood today. Things are just good. I had a great day yesterday, went to bed in a happy mood and woke up this […]

Thankful Things Thursday: Winding Down From Disney

I didn’t forget that today is Thursday. I’m just way late in posting due to traveling. At 4 am, when my alarm went off, I wasn’t feeling very thankful. But I am now, so let’s get to it. Here’s what I’m thankful for on this very lovely Thursday… I’m thankful for the amazing trip I […]

Thankful Things Thursday: I Love Runner Friends

It’s another scorcher in NYC today. And you know what? I’m fine with it. And, judging from the comments on yesterday’s post, you guys are fine with it, too — or at least you all have some awesome hot weather/beat-the-sweat coping mechanisms. One thing I’ve learned since living in a city where you do so […]
