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 be hard to find. I get it. But, I’ve been in nyc for 6 years and I can count on my one hand – fuck, I can count on two fingers, dudes that have touched my heart. I now you cant force it, but man, I had hoped the one I have (had?) my eye on was open to it. What are you doing to me life?? 

I spent the majority of the summer drinking rose, dating, traveling and basically running….ish. 
I have ZERO regrets about living my life this summer, sometimes in lieu of doing any kind of serious training. ZERO regrets. I may not be singing that same tune in a month when im on mile 23 of the portland marathon, but whatever, ill just think back fondly to that summertime crush and glass of rose that mellowed me out and made me happy. Who needs to feel good at mile 23 anyway, right?

Discussion has also progressed to the big move to florida. My mom and bill have scheduled their first trip to scope out houses next month. The “plan” is for me to move in with them and find a job and a place. I definitely want my mom to help me find the perfect pad and help decorate it! HELLO NEW BED!! 

So back to the ol’ boyfriend. I figure if I put the vibes out, he will find me right? Watch this space.

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 :)
