post marathon

everyone tells you how sore you are going to be after running a marathon. while thats true, i dont remember anyone mentioning how utterly EXHAUSTED i would be. i have been in bed by 8:30pm for 2 days in a row and i am still so tired.

i give credit to awesome friends for helping me focus on other things than pain after i was done. i did wear compression pants (ive worn them everyday) and have foam rolled, iced and hit the gym to keep my legs from getting too stiff. suffice to say i planned well for the soreness. the exhausted has been kicking my ass, however. holy balls!

as i prepared for the marathon, and now as i sit back and enjoy the completion of it, i have a few favorite lines and pics that kept me motivated. below are a few. enjoy!!! :)

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 :)
