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.

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 :)




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…

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…
