yep, this totally happened.

just your typical saturday here in the city. despite getting home at 4am this morning, i headed out for a run (thank you drew kelley for being the internal motivator for me). i ran part of my run in central park and ran the rest down madison ave, dodging between sidewalk shoppers and street traffic. as i made my way toward 63rd street, i heard someone yell what i thought was my name. this being nyc, people yell all the time, but i thought id look behind me just to be sure. LOOK WHO I RAN INTO!

aunt kathie and uncle dwight were walking on madison and he spotted me running. INSANE! i was in shock for the first 5 minutes of talking (or was that just exhaustion?!). anyway, this is far and away one of the coolest moments i have ever had.

still cant believe it. what are the chances?!?!?

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 :)
