it finally happened!!!

the weekend was exactly what i expected it would be: AMAZING!! from the moment i hugged him outside my apartment on thursday night to the sad moment he kissed me goodbye monday afternoon B and i took new york by storm.

there had been so much build up and so much anticipation for this trip that youd never think it could have lived up to it. well it did.  

all of the chemistry i felt over skype was real and even though we hadnt seen each other in over 5 years we hadnt missed a beat. 

those that know me know how i get with boys that mean a lot to me. i tend to push them away a teensy bit as a way to protect myself. its silly really. here is a boy i really like and instead of saying exactly what i really mean + feel, i joke about being really great friends or act standoffish, among other stupid things. i wish i could say i didnt do any of this with B but id be lying. as i think fondly back to the weekend i realize there are so many things i wish i could have done different, said different or acted different. then again, im me and i cant have regrets. i will always make mistakes and just have to hope he can see past it.

there were so many highlights to this past weekend. we saw roddick win at the us open (in his last tournament EVER), went to a yankees game, had a hilarious time getting drunk together and reminisced about our friendship and how cool it is that weve stayed so close. i found myself looking at him with such comfort and fondness throughout the 4 days, it was really quite cute. i think he is a fantastic, truly awesome dude and i am so lucky he came to visit. i woke up on monday feeling low knowing he only had a few precious hours before he had to leave. i have such love for him, its a pretty special bond we have. heres to the future...not sure whats in store, but i know its going to be great. 

a few of my fave random pics from the weekend.

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 :)
