For the past six days, I couldn’t eat. I barely slept. I didn’t even think about running. But yesterday? Oh sweet, beautiful yesterday. Yesterday I ate. I slept. And yes, I ran. Let’s talk about the running first, because that’s […]

I currently look like I got kicked, punched and then tossed underneath a rapidly flowing waterfall. When it rains in New York City, people get aggressive. The Upper East Side was like a war zone this morning. People get all […]

Yesterday’s Sadness Fest was fun, don’t you think? No! It wasn’t fun! It was silly. So I didn’t PR in Las Vegas like I had hoped. The great thing about that is that I’m over it now. Thank you all […]
