new york has had better weeks. id like to reflect on a few of my favorite things, times, memories and highlights of the past 2 years.

- brooklyn heights -- one of the most historic and scenic neighborhoods in the borough of brooklyn was home for my first year in new york. its amazingness isnt lost of me now that ive gone all manhattan.

- readers digest. now maxim. my head is spinning.

- marathon training with niketown run club. despite not knowing anyone, i am so happy i chose to run with this group of people to train for the philly marathon. #teamnike rocks. so does #teampink (go gav!)

- friends. family. shopping. ice skating. good food. roommates. new friends. crushes. tears. the giggles. isnt it all worth it??

as i start my new gig today at maxim i just want to remember a few things that have made me feel so lucky and blessed over the past 2 years ive been in nyc. sure, life has thrown the kelley's a tough road but im doing my damnedest to make my dad proud and work my ass off for myself. so far so good :)

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 :)
