Wow. How did I go 25 years without using a foam roller? And how did I survive training for three 1/2 marathons without falling in love with this awesomely simple device? Let’s backtrack, shall we? After running the NYC 1/2 […]

Silly “Sweaters” and Lazy Sundays

Last night, ABS and I were invited to an Ugly Christmas Sweater party. I’ll be the first to admit that I’m a bit “over” this theme. Yes, it can be really fun. But we didn’t know the theme until the […]

Was Today Productive?

Not really. Hehe. But it’s OK. That being said, there’s not a whole lot to update you with. I ran 12+ miles this morning, feasted on a homemade pizza for lunch then ran some errands down in SoHo. After making […]

I Said Brrrrr, It’s Cold Out There!
