hello again monday. with "spring ahead" and losing an hour this past weekend, im a tired pup today. maybe its cause i went to sleep at 5am on saturday or ran 31 miles this weekend. haha, nah, has to be losing that hour. you dont really realize the power of an hour until you get it taken away.

see, even LL is tired from losing an hour:

oh, wait, she just flirted with drugs for too long. something tells me she could use an extra hour of beauty sleep though. jesus.

heading to panama city beach tomorrow to throw a maxim spring break party with audrina. heres to hoping i dont witness any vomit, hookups, drugs or babies being made. what am i saying?! this is maxim spring break!! i am bound to see some combination of all of that :)

started my day with a 9 mile run along the FDR. started in the dark and finished post sunrise. it was a really peaceful, great way to start my day. i found myself just feeling grateful to be out there doing my thing along the water. there arent many times you can steal moments in nyc so when you can, you should. thought about my dad a lot, thought about how beautiful the city can be, thought about how much i wanted to be back in bed (those first 20 minutes of every run are brutal) and thought about how amazing the coffee was going to taste after i was done. (not my pic below, but it shows the running path so you get the idea). and i was right, that grande bold from the bux made me really happy. the post run flush didnt hurt either.

i normally try to be more in the moment than "oh man i wish i could hurry up and it be ______ (fill in the blank for a future date here)" but i really am psyched for the coming weekend. we have a packed weekend coming up!!! just gotta survive panama city beach ;)

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 :)
