9/11

can you believe it has been 7 years since the attacks on the world trade center, pentagon and flight 93!? i will never forget the moment we realized what was happening. i was walking into my senior year sociology class with mr mlnyck. he had the TV on when class was beginning and left it on even after the bell rang. obviously it was fun to think that maybe that days class was going to be fun...tv in school, afterall!! sadly, it was not a movie we were watching. it was real life. it was new york. it was terrorism and evil at its finest. i just want to take a minute and honor those that lost thier lives. those that lost someone they love. we are all tied together as a species and i, for one, think the aftermath of all of it is an unbelievable example of how the united states can and will rally despite anything. as a nation we will never forget. but we will grow stronger. god bless the USA.

march madness

i have come to find the madness of life happens far beyond march. that said, when we really think about it, lifes madness is a gift, right? i mean that in a "take the good with the bad" kind of way, not so much that i love the madness.

i live in madness. all the time. i love so many things about NYC - but sometimes, those same things are the things that sending me screaming into my pillow or heading out of town at a moments notice.

take this past weekend. i had had enough of NYC - sleepless nights, work stress and a nagging running injury. it was one of my best childhood friends birthdays, so i hopped on a train for a 3.5 hour ride to newport for an incredible night filled with endless prosecco and bread, birthday cake and wonderful memories and laughs, i returned to NYC 24 hours later (after a 5 hour wi-fi less ride) a better person. sure, the ride back was brutal - but the sore abs and messy hair reminded me that it was exactly what life is about.

madness, baby. may it las…

break a sweat - even when youd rather do ANYTHING but.

there is only one way to begin the difficult journey of the holiday sugar detox: break a sweat. 

miraculously i didnt miss a day over the holidays to break a sweat -- but that really just means i got up extra early or ran when people were napping (i.e. full and feeling gross) so not all of my holiday miles or squats were pretty. or felt particular good.

BUT, i laced up and got out there -- or followed along to a dailyburn workout. i kept telling myself i could slow down or take it easier, but shit, im doing a workout.

so basically, what they say is true. no matter how slow you go, youre still lapping everyone on the couch. go get in a good sweat, then reward yourself with some couch time :)
