hi mom!

i miss my mom :)

aside from all the great things i hope to do out here, and great people i hope to meet (hello cute boys!!), i cant help but state that one of the shittiest things is that i am 3000 miles away from the person that "gets me" the best.

her laugh. her smile. her tears. her and i getting ready to do things, or happily shlepping in 3-days old sportswear. i miss it all.

but, its ok. between phone calls, emails, bbms and text messages, we are pretty much still together. obviously not nearly the same...but while we both figure out some stuff in life, a little mileage will have to do. we both deserve great things, and i am so excited to see where life takes us...for a bit we are just going to be bicoastal. which, actually, is pretty badass.

so there you have it. i miss you mom. always will. i mean i think i miss you when im near you. haha, thats just what happens when you have such a great bestie like i do.

just know mom, that sometimes before i go to bed, i think of you. i talk to you like i do dad, and i cant wait to hang out soon. our lives are obviously forever BEST FRIEND-IFIED and were mother/daughter, so were always close. its SUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU
UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCKS not hanging out at the drop of a hat, but this little seperation is important so we can plan for the future. i gotta make those big bucks out here is la la land!

cheers mom! for going on this journey with me, and inviting me on yours. for putting up with me...all of me. all the time. anytime. you are the absolute greatest person, and the world is soo lucky. cant wait to talk in the morning :)

summer OUT / fall IN

And just like that, summer sixteen is over. Hello fall! While I love nothing more than heading out for some miles in the kind of weather that makes it hard to breathe, makes you sweat more than you thought was humanly possible and leaves you a bit red in the face, I equally love the crispness of fall mornings, the smell of fall in the air and apple picking!
Ok, I’ve never actually gone apple picking. I’ve dreamed about it. Glanced at pictures of it. Hoped I would do it. Friends never seemed to want to go – and the boyfriend thing has been a fleeting item on the to-do list. Well, its happening this weekend! Sunday. Sinuses, weather, and whatever else, keep it together. This girl wants to go apple picking! 
Fall sixteen has already gotten off to a busy – and celebratory – start. Mom and bill got married (!!!) which made me really emotional and nostalgic. It was a beautiful weekend and definitely cemented how much I want a love of my own. Been a tough go though – I mean, its supposed to …

2013: a year in review. so far

today is february 22nd.we are already almost 2/12 of the way through 2013. i realize that line may sound uber cheesy, but seriously, time fucking flies.

2013 has definitely been a cool year. hard, confusing, sad and stressful, but certainly cool. parts of it have also been special, funny, amazing and sweet. all of that emotion in 2 months? hey man, im a girl. were dramtaic.

ive got high hopes for the rest of the year. there are a few running races in the books, with more to be added im sure. there will be some heading to see my besties in chicago and boston and bro in NC to name a few. im hoping there is a trip to somewhere warm in the near future...i have no interest in resembling a vampire...that shit has been overexposed already.

the moment hasnt happened to me yet where i go to my bank account and theres an accidental million dollars. regardless i take my dads advice to heart..."hil, never miss an opportunity you really want simply because of money". look, i…

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 :)
