21-Day Gluten-Free Experiment

Observant readers (my mom) might have noticed me complaining more about digestive issues lately.

I’ve had ‘em since college, though they’ve been a lot better in the past few years since adopting a healthier lifestyle and finding a probiotic I loved. Well, that probiotic is now unavailable, and my stomach is just a hot mess as of late.

In the past, I’ve gone in a frustrating circle of: regular…

More | Fitness Half Marathon 2014 Race Recap

Well, another half in the books! 

This makes something like 23 or 24 (at least according to my race recaps page.)

Six years ago, I could barely run a mile or two; today I ran a half just for funsies, chatting the entire time.

I was actually really nervous, though. I just haven’t been running much in the past few months, and the ten-miler last weekwasn’t easy. So, I decided that distracting myself…

Running Doesn’t Solve Everything…But It Doesn’t Hurt!

As you know, I love running. It’s changed my life for the better in a lot of ways.

Running Doesn’t Solve Everything…But It Doesn’t Hurt!

As you know, I love running. It’s changed my life for the better in a lot of ways.

Because I know so many of you are obsessed w/barre classes: barre moves you can do at home!

A Night at Carnegie Hall

A Night at Carnegie Hall

The other day, I got a text from my friend Daria.

“Do you want to go to the Manhattan Pops at Carnegie Hall on Friday night?”

I had a million reasons to say no: what if I was tired after work and just wanted to go home and get in bed? I was leaving for DC the next morning, maybe I should just go home and pack. 31 is really cool, you guys.

But as much as I love this city to death, I feel like I…

Cherry Blossom Ten Miler Race Recap

Cherry Blossom Ten Miler Race Recap

Since I started running, I’ve always wanted to run the Cherry Blossom Ten Miler. I love running races in D.C., and I especially like the 10-mile distance.

Back in the fall, some friends and I signed up for the lottery together as a team. We’d heard it was easier to get in that way, so we decided it worth a try…and we got in!

I’ve been a total fair-weather runner through this crappy winter, so I…

Coming Full Circle

Six years ago, I was getting a haircut at my friend’s apartment.

I’d had a quarter-life crisis the month before and then did a whole lot of soul-searching. Was I happy in DC? Why did I still live there? What would happen if I left?

As Rachel clipped away, I talked through thinking about moving with them. I think I knew deep down what I needed to do but needed a little validation and a little…

Can Runners Eat Whatever They Want?

Can Runners Eat Whatever They Want?

Last week, I read an article in the WSJ called Why Runners Can’t Eat Whatever They Want.

Total clickbait, and I fell for it hook, line and sinker and clicked right through. I’ve been thinking about the relationship between running, food and weight loss/maintenance lately, so it was a timely read for me.

I really like to eat (and, let’s be real, drink wine), so long distance running really…

Trying Out Yoga Shanti

Trying Out Yoga Shanti

Last year, I fell in love with yoga during a rough spot in life.

Without a doubt, yoga was my therapy. I walked into Laughing Lotus a hot mess, and walked out a zen, happy being, smiling to myself as I walked home. (No, really.)

Since starting my new job in October, I’ve pushed myself hard in every area of life: work, working out, trying to finish my Junior League term.Oh yeah, and there was that…
