hk recap

wow a lot has been going on! lets start, shall we...

1. maxim spring break
i spent tuesdday-friday in panama city beach florida with team maxim (really just a coworker and myself) throwing one hell of a spring break party! in short, we hung on the beach, got badly sunburned, hung with audrina, saw too many people booty shake it, had too much bribing people to talk to maxim.com and got a shoulder ride from the one and only HONKEY! he also thought anytime was a good time to pick me up...as you can see below. it was a week of too little sleep, too much sun and too much work. craziest part happened on our way home when we boarded a broken plane only to sent off of it for 3 hours as it was fixed. by the love of god we boarded at 730pm, got into atlanta and BOOKED IT (and i mean BOOKED IT) to the other end of the airport to make a 945 connection. into laguardia at 1am to find they lost my bad. SWEET! went home, got up to hit the gym and meet the besties to play and start to mentally prepare for the half marathon!

2. nyc half marathon
13.1 seems to be our thing. and i kind of love that. we wore matching neon green sweatbands and as much green as we could to run the st patricks day new york city half. it was SO COLD but so fun to run with my bestie. the rest of the day was spent visiting friends in bars, going to brunch and hanging out in my apt before i sadly had to say goodbye :)

4. juice cleanse
two of my coworkers and i are doing a 2-day juice cleanse. its as fun as it sounds. im trying to figure out how im going to hit the gym, do run club and go to a soccer game tomorrow all while juicing but hopefully ill figure it out. haha. its 5 juices and im adding in some celery to  munch on and a few sticks of gum to keep my mouth busy. ha, christ.


anyway, as you can see, life has been busy. i wanted to write this and have you read this as a pretty casual entry so im not even going back to edit/proofread. enjoy.

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 travel...im 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 :)
