The Best Pairing Since Will and Kate

The Best Pairing Since Will and Kate

This post is sponsored by Almond Breeze and was written pre-coffee. The author cannot be held responsible for sentiments expressed without caffeine.

A day without coffee is like a day without sunshine.


A few years ago, I had to give up coffee for a few months, and it was a dark point in my life with no happiness. I’m only slightly exaggerating.

I love everything about coffee—the way it warms me up inside, the morning ritual of it, and,…

Fired Up!

Guys, I’m feeling all sorts of fired up and inspired today.

Between chatting with Ashley about her marathon, seeing how Charlie smashed her PR, refreshing Twitter obsessively for news on Dori’s marathon and tracking Meghan at Ironman Chattanooga, it’s hard not to be inspired, right?

And Shalane freaking Flanagan busting out an amazing PR in Berlin.

Oh AND there was a half in my hometown today,…

The Links That Brought Me Down the Internet Wormhole This Week

The Links That Brought Me Down the Internet Wormhole This Week

Laura always starts out her link posts with “Want to stay in bed longer?” and I always wonder who this mythical creature is who lolls around, reading in bed.

In my quest to slow the eff down this week, I’m doing just that. Just lying in bed with Bailey, watching the sun stream in through my windows. [Or, I was when I started writing this this morning…]

Pumpkin Spice Latte Tinder WHAT?

And matching with Pumpkin Spice Lattes on…

Life As a Balancing Act

Life As a Balancing Act

Yeah, I’ve got it.

Life’s an ongoing rollercoaster in discovering balance, right?

For several years, I balanced a big volunteer commitment, writing this blog, training for races, having a social life and the occasional dating on top of a full-time job. That volunteer commitment ended in July, I decided to stop training for a big race in August, I did some pulling back from the blog and I had ALL…

Run 10 Feed 10 Recap

Run 10 Feed 10 Recap

As you know, I didn’t race Princeton the other day, but I DID run the Run 10 Feed 10.

The race is for an amazing cause — for every entry, 10 meals are donated for those going hungry in local neighborhoods. (I got a free bib, but I will also be making a donation.)

And I accidentally PR-ed!

After Reach the Beach, my legs were feeling rather cranky. I went to my NYJL run club Saturday, and I felt…

Using Music to Beat Your Impossible

Using Music to Beat Your Impossible

This post is sponsored by Jabra. All opinions and cheesy playlists are my own, though.

For a long time, I DID NOT listen to music while running. I preferred to listen to the sound of my breath and take in my surroundings and work through things in my head.

Last year, there was a whole lot going on, and I didn’t want to be left alone with my thoughts. I started listening to podcastsand music while…

The 70.3 That Wasn’t

The 70.3 That Wasn’t

I was supposed to be racing Princeton 70.3 this morning.

After the New York City Marathon last year, I was happy reaching my goal and didn’t feel a need to keep pushing, pushing right away to see how much faster I could get. (BQ by 35? That’s another story that I think I’m ready to start chipping away at next year.)

I chose Princeton as my goal for this year because it was different, and because…

The Links That Brought Me Down the Internet Wormhole This Week

I don’t know about you, but I really like reading link roundups, and discovering random new sites and articles on the Internetz beyond those in my usual rotation. Lindsay at Lean Green Bean writes a pretty epic one and Laura writes one every week, and I usually find lots of great articles for the one I write at work. But sometimes I find some awesome random stuff that doesn’t quite fit in the…

2014 Reach the Beach New Hampshire Recap

2014 Reach the Beach New Hampshire Recap

Last weekend, I slept in a van and didn’t shower for 36 hours, and it was SO MUCH FUN.

I tell that to coworkers and friends, and they look at me like I’m crazy, but it’s true. I ran the New Hampshire Reach the Beach Relay on a New Balance-sponsored team, and had the time of my life.


Here’s the 11 other ladies I had the pleasure of spending the weekend with…while we were still clean, visiting the

We Reached the Beach!

We Reached the Beach!

I’m still incredibly sleep deprived, but I wanted to pop in and say hi and let you know we reached the beach! 

Reach the Beach NH

New Balance Team Pumped Up Kicks Reach the Beach

Love these ladies!

Since Wednesday, I have gone from NYC to Boston to NH back to Boston to NYC. I’m going to go become reacquainted with my bed, but you know I’ll be back with recaps this week!

In the meantime, thank you so so much to my New Balance buddies for sponsoring our…
