Last year, I reviewed a bunch of Lorna Jane clothes.
I thought they were super cute, and I felt cool reviewing a brand that was pretty new to the U.S. (They’ve been in Australia forever.)
At the time, I just thought they were cute clothes.
Last August, I went to a press breakfast where Ms. Lorna Jane Clarkson herself spoke — very candidly about the ups and downs of building a very successful…
So it’s been two weeks since I decided not to do the Half-Ironman. And I still feel great about the decision, so it was certainly the right one right now.
What have I been up to since then?
It should surprise nobody that I’ve been to Uplift three times.
One regular class, one “triathlon” and one Workout + Wine.
I went to SoulCycle once with a coworker.
I ran two loops of Prospect Park yesterday…
I’ve had some pretty freaking cool experiences since starting this blog, but Fresh Direct helped me pull off a really cool one last week.
A few weeks ago I was driving back from the Hamptons, and I got an email from the FreshDirect PR people asking if I wanted to participate in a lobster party with them. IS THIS REAL LIFE? WHAT IS MY LIFE? immediately went through my mind, and I emailed the…
Long-time readers know a few things about me:
1. I’m a little wacky.
2. I’ve loved New Balance since they were a client of mine a few years ago. I think it’s a truly amazing company with amazing products and amazing people. (I got to tour their factory and totally geeked out.)
3. I loved tennis far before I loved running or any other fitness activity.
Also, I LOVE causing rackets. Er, racquets?
For the first two years I blogged here, I blogged most of my meals, for better or worse.
And then I stopped for a number of reasons: I’d been laid off, and honestly, didn’t want to be judged for what i was or wasn’t spending my money on, I was bored of it, and I was having a bout of digestive issues and I didn’t want anyone to potentially try to emulate the sometimes weird combinations I was…
Things have been a little heavy up in here, so let’s just talk about some things I’ve been loving lately, eh?
Pre-Workout: Amanda first introduced me to this magic at the Runner’s World Half in Boston. I tried the Vega Pre-Workout Energizer then and LOVED it – both for the taste and the energy it gave me without upsetting my stomach or making me too jittery. I love my coffee, but my sensitive…
After I decided not to do the half-Ironman, I felt like a huge weight had been lifted off my shoulders.
Having struggled with anxiety, I’ve generally tried to remove stress where I can in my life. I remember Katy wrote a great post a few years ago about the “summer of no.” I’ve been trying to simplify my life where possible so I can focus on the things I can control to make me happy.
In 2009, I…
Yesterday, I had an epiphany while riding my bike out to Montauk.
I do not enjoy biking enough to ride 56 miles. (After I’ve swam 1.2 and before running 13.1.)
I originally signed up for this Half-Ironman because I wanted a new challenge. I had run four marathons, and I had beat my sub-4 goal that I’d been trying for. I’d done some triathlons, and finally really enjoyed one. Its distance was…
For part of their “Add Flavor” challenge, Propel has wanted us to monitor our hydration levels throughout various workouts, and hydrate accordingly.
Good thing it’s summer…
Because I’m sweating a lot.
The easiest way to monitor your hydration level is through your pee. So…
