Today is the Boston Marathon. You know that by now, right? Well, I’m obsessed. I wish I could be in Boston today cheering on all of the amazing, inspiring runners. I never thought twice about the Boston Marathon until this […]

Spring! Spring Is Here!

Good morning! It’s a lovely misty but warm morning in New York City and I’m feeling good going into a new week. Well. That’s kind of a lie. I’m still feeling sick, actually, and I’ve taken cold medicine and allergy […]

This morning I ran the New York Road Runners Scotland 10K race in Central Park. Considering I ran a half marathon two weeks ago, you’d think I would have cruised right through this bad boy today. Not so much. A […]

Good morning! I’d love to say I stayed up to watch “Glee” after the Super Bowl last night, but I definitely did not. ABS and I went to a Super Bowl party in our neighborhood and though I had no […]

A Perfect Day For Sweatpants

This morning I posted my “Weekend To-Do List.” Let’s just say I accomplished…some of the things I needed/wanted to. Honestly, on days like today — wet, gloomy, rainy, cold — To-Do lists should be thrown out the window. But of […]

Happy Weekend! I am so, so happy it’s Saturday. This week took a major toll on me. Naturally I didn’t let myself sleep in today, but I’m thinking an afternoon nap might be in my very near future. Last night […]
