summer 2013

i cant believe its already labor day this weekend...WHAT?! the end of august is upon us. how did this happen? they say time flies, even more so as you get older and they are right. at the ripe old age of 3-months-shy-of-30 time FLIES. fucking flies. (sorry im not sorry for the swearing).



summer has been pretty great. and by pretty great i mean doing all the simple things that i love have been fucking great. really really amazingly fucking great. beach trips, cookouts, running, training and races, movies, lazy weekends, raging nights out, bestie sleepovers and lots of coffee...it has all been great.

looking ahead (even though i dont want to) there is some fun stuff being lined up for this fall/winter. ive got a few races in the coming months (the marathon, obvs), a 30th bday, and a trip or two with my best friends ( we NEVER take vacations or days off ever)! oh, if you  havent checked it out in a while, please help support my charity efforts for team water for people and the ING new york city marathon! http://www.crowdrise.com/water4peoplenyc2013/fundraiser/hilarykelley

and, on that note, the US OPEN started today. i was grocery shopping yesterday and ran into this handsome cat. andy murray is pretty hot.

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 :)
