we run this city.

tonight marks the third week in a row i will be heading to niketown after work to run with team nike.

ill admit it makes for a long day. i usually dont get home until about 8pm or so. while i dont love eating dinner ay 8:15pm, it is actually, totally worth it. take last week, for example. i ran with a cute boy :)

heres the deal. i have a competitive spirit so when our pacer started the run, you bet your ass i ran in the front. i happened to be running next to a cute boy; the same cute boy i actually happened to notice in week 1. so, here we are in 19 degree weather running around the reservoir in Central Park. i positioned myself diagonally behind him (as i often did with dad and do with drew) and we ran the park. we talked a bit (weeeee!!) and finished strong. its was delightful :)

keep you posted if i see him tonight. me with my bronchitis...he'll love it :)

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 :)
