Casual Friday Afternoon Ninja Warrioring

Casual Friday Afternoon Ninja Warrioring

HI!

I’ve probably never mentioned that I love my job, right? (P.S. Today is our first birthday!)

Today’s work activity was particularly fun. We called it a day at 3pm and headed out to Brooklyn Zoo (not the kind with animals) to meet up with the Greatist crew for a little mingling and jumping around.

I was expecting something more…

A Weekend in Savannah

A Weekend in Savannah

Four years ago, I decided I’d go to the Healthy Living Summit. I started following a Twitter list of bloggers going, and one of those bloggers just so happened to be in NYC. She tweeted something about having an extra spot for a yoga event, and I decided it was a great way to meet someone else going to this conference. The yoga event ended up getting rained out, but I met one of my best friends…

#PropelFit Challenge: Work Out with Friends

#PropelFit Challenge: Work Out with Friends

Disclaimer: This post is sponsored by FitFluential on behalf of Propel. I was compensated and all opinions are 100% my own.

This month, Propel has been asking us to work out with a friend for our Add Flavor challenge. That’s not much of a challenge for me, since I love to work out with friends, but okay.

So far, most of my tri training has been solitary. This has definitely been a departure from…

I Feel Alive

I feel so alive. May I hazard to say, more alive than I’ve ever felt?

I have a job I love so very much with supportive and amazing coworkers turned friends. It challenges me each and every day, and it’s something I’m so passionate about.

I finished a huge volunteer commitment that was something I never thought I could do, and that many times throughout those two years, I didn’t think I could do.

Open Water Swim Clinic with JackRabbit Sports

In the several triathlons I’ve done, the swim has usually been the most humbling part for me.

Triathlon Is a Humbling Sport (or Three!)

Triathlon Is a Humbling Sport (or Three!)

Welp, triathlon training continues to be humbling.

I thought this post would be about how I went to a training camp and now feel so much stronger and more confident about my abilities.

LOL.

Yesterday morning, I woke up at 5 and took the train all the way up to 145th and Riverside to meet Sam, my triathlon angel, for a tri training camp.

Riverbank Park

The plan was to swim, then bike, then run. We swam for…

Princeton Half Ironman 70.3 Training: Week of July 7-14

I started out numbering my training by week, but then lost a few weeks, so we’re back to dates. 

Last week, I had a work retreat and a trip out to the , so I tried to do the best I could.

Monday: rest day. I’ve been doing long rides on Sundays, so I’ve usually taken Mondays off.

Tuesday: 45 minutes in the pool

Wednesday: Was supposed to do 1:30 on the bike and 1:00 run, but we were leaving…

A Lovely Hamptons Weekend

HELLO from the Hamptons!

I took today off from work, and although I love my job, I could not be happier that this morning’s view was this and not my computer screens.

So, my friend Heather that I’m out here with is a blog reader turned IRL friend. She came up to me at the Derby party this year and said she read my blog and had joined the Junior League because of me. We started chatting and…

Another Kind of Workout

Another Kind of Workout

Yesterday morning, I woke up with the sun and rode up to Central Park to get a good 1.5 hour ride in before work.

By 3pm, my coworkers and I boarded a bus to go to Crystal Springs for our company retreat. I had never been on a company retreat before, so I was very curious about what we were getting ourselves into.

Well, when you work for a fitness company… it will probably involve fitness.

After…

The thing about training for a new race distance is you’re checking off new milestones all the time.
