New York City Marathon Training: Week 7

Going into marathon training, I knew there were two things that could derail even my best efforts at training and racing: an injury or a Crohn’s flare. I am extremely un-thrilled to report that the latter decided to show up during Week 7 of training which, subsequently, became my worst week of training thus far. I […]

Hello From Vermont!

Hello from the Green Mountain State! This is the third (and final!) state on our Annual Tour de New England. First, Brian, Ellie, and I spent a few days in Massachusetts to celebrate my niece’s second birthday. Then, we had a brief “layover” in New Hampshire, where we stayed with my parents and, obviously, made some […]

Hey. What’s Up? Hello!

Yesterday, I called to make an appointment to get a spray tan — my first spray tan ever, very reluctantly — because I have a bad case of “summer running” on my back and my wedding dress is not, in fact, in the shape of a Lululemon Cool Racerback top. The nice woman on the […]

The Rise From Rock Bottom

The nice thing about having a blog is that — if you actually update it regularly — it allows you to look back on the past and quite vividly remember what you were going through or how you were feeling on any given day. I needed a brain break the other day, so I pulled […]

The Best Weekend Ever

I know that’s a bold statement. But this weekend was awesome. Five of my best college girl friends, two new friends, skiing, tubing, cooking and lots of red wine. What’s better than that? Here’s what went down: I took Friday off from work so that my friend Lauren and I could drive up to Vermont […]

Vermont Is Lovely

Hellooooo from the north! I took yesterday off from blogging so I could maximize my time with my girlfriends while we’re up in Vermont for the weekend. But today, I’m the first person awake, so I figured I’d use the alone time to give you all a little update on what we’ve been up to. […]

When The Boyfriend’s Away…

…Ali will play. And sing along at the top of my lungs listen to Justin Bieber. And clean. In other words, I’ve been wildly productive tonight, and I’m pretty psyched about it. Not that I wouldn’t have been as motivated if ABS had come home earlier, but it was nice having the place to myself […]
