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…

THIS.

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…

Learning to Believe in Myself

Learning to Believe in Myself

I saw this quote on the Instagrams a few week ago, and it seriously resonated with me.

I was always slightly shy but relatively confident growing up. I did well in school, I was at least nominally athletic, I had friends and a supportive family. I had a bunch going for me, I thought.

Going away to college, I gained the Freshman 15. And then some. And then some more. Being the chubby girl around…

What’s On the Menu? What’s Off the Menu?

What’s On the Menu? What’s Off the Menu?

I am participating in a sponsored campaign for Beano. I received Beano products and compensation in exchange for my participation. The opinions stated here are my own.

We talked a few weeks ago about what was off the menu for me. Namely, dairy, raw veggies and spicy foods. Now, while probiotics have helped immensely, and I’ve actually been able to enjoy salad for lunch lately sometimes like a…

Back in the Saddle

Back in the Saddle

I mentioned the other day that I’m exploring tri clubs. Although 70.3 just wasn’t for me right now, I am definitely enjoying tris. I like the addition of biking and swimming to my running as cross-training. Although I do lifting stuff because I know I should/it’s good for me (as both a woman and a runner), my jam is endurance, baby. 

With a little help from Triathlon Angel Sam and an open-water…

Thoughts

It’s Friday night and I’m having a wild evening of sipping on this, leafing through all of the September issues and watching the U.S. Open.

Earlier in the summer, I’d decided not to go away for Memorial Day and Labor Day and got bored and lonely and regretted those decisions, but I’m more than okay with being around this weekend. I woke up with a sore throat this morning, so I’m definitely coming…
