hey dad, here's a riddle for ya. find the answer. theres a reason for the and i.

thats a line from the song "the riddle" by five for fighting. both my dad and i had such love for these guys. his favorite thing was that they had such a strong name for a band that sings relatively cute/light/loving tunes.

there are things in my life that hit that sweet spot of reminding me of a memory and this band is one of those things. this song really resonates with me.

what is it about certain songs that have the power to take you somewhere else? or feel such a strong emotion? take journey...who doesnt have 1000 memories surrounding "dont stop believing"? i for one still smile when r. kelly's "remix to ignition" comes on. same for 50 cent's "in da club" and ace of base's "i saw the sign". ill always get excited for the backstreet boys, jefferson starship, the spin doctors and phil collins.

its pretty cool how powerful music can be.

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 :)
