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

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…

That Time Taking a Silly Selfie Worked Out in My Favor

That Time Taking a Silly Selfie Worked Out in My Favor

A few weeks ago, I realized U.S. Open season was coming up, and I didn’t have tickets.

Steph and I did some chatting on the Twitters about it, and then one day I got into work early, locked myself in a breakout room, and clicked over to my gmail for a hot second to see…

Hell yeah! I went with Steph, Jenny and my friend Courtney last Monday, Labor Day.

We saw Victoria Azarenka and…

IronGirl Sandy Hook Sprint Triathlon Recap

IronGirl Sandy Hook Sprint Triathlon Recap

Yesterday, I completed my 6th triathlon – the women’s only IronGirl Sandy Hook.

Say Yes

Just say yes to races.

On Saturday morning, my mom and I drove down to Sandy Hook. She’s lived in NJ her entire life, and I’ve lived in this area 24 out of my 31 years, yet neither of us had ever been to the Sandy Hook area. ADORABLE. And just 1:15 from my parents’ house or a 40-minute ferry ride from the city. AND…

Why Fall Cycling is the Best Cycling

Why Fall Cycling is the Best Cycling

Disclosure: This post was sponsored by Target® C9 through their partnership with POPSUGAR Select. While I was compensated to write a post about Target® C9, all opinions are my own.

As the summer comes to a close, I am SAD! I’m blond, I love the beach and the sun. I’m just a summer girl at heart. (This is in direct conflict with my go-go-go NYC personality, I realize.)

The days are slowly getting…
