NYC marathon 2012

gahhhhh. i want in SO bad. now that i have registered, talked to my uncle about it and have gotten the results from when my dad ran it from 1982 (wow!!) i want to do it soo soo bad. damn lottery system.

drew sent me dads results from 1982, WOW! he was 29. i will be 10 days shy of turning 29 if i get in this year, so it seems perfect. he ran it in 3:52:11. if i get in, thats my time to beat. (really, my goal is at least 3:59:59. those extra minutes are going to be SO necessary)

im already thinking of the tshirt i am going to make to run in. my dream was to run the NYC marathon with my dad, but im pretty sure running it for him will feel pretty magical.

fingers crossed.

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 :)
