An Electric Morning in Central Park

NYC is buzzing. The energy is incredible as everyone is arriving in town for the NYC Marathon. People travel from all over the world to run this race and it warms my heart (cheesy, I know) that people can come […]

I woke up on the wrong side of the bed today, that’s for sure. It was raining. Hard. Still. That meant no morning run, which made me sad because even at 5:30 am I felt rested and ready to run. […]

Today seemed to go on forever. I had plenty to do at work, but I think I left my motivation at home. I hate days like that, because they always drag on. I also hit a major slump in the […]

I Run Faster When I’m Cold

I am so looking forward to Daylight Savings Time this weekend! Getting out of bed wasn’t easy this morning. My alarm went off at 4:30 am again — Darn it, Steve Jobs, help fix my iPhone! An hour later, when […]

Well, so far at least. As productive as ABS and I were all weekend, there was (and is) still so much to be done at the apartment! We got to bed fairly early last night and, as predicted, I didn’t […]
