Bloggers Take Boston

Good morning from Massachusetts! :) Man, I love New England and Boston, too. It’s nice to be back for a visit! As I mentioned, I’m here in town for a blogger event with Reebok today. Bloggers are coming in from all over, but there was a group of us that came up straight from the Fitness Magazine event yesterday in NYC. We traveled on the Continue Reading …

Goodbye, Biochem!

Guess what, friends? Today I have my very last exam of graduate school! Woohoo!!! Our biochem final exam is at noon. We had a review session at school yesterday, after which my classmate Maria and I stayed for a bit more studying, although we weren’t feeling very motivated. All of us are feeling rather wiped out at this point and tired of school, Continue Reading …

Raleigh in 3 Hours

A couple months ago, while procrastinating during one of our study sessions, I told my friend Maria that I’ve lived here in Chapel Hill for almost 2 years and basically never been to Raleigh (besides a couple super quick trips for specific events at night). Given that Maria went to NC State undergrad and has lived in the Raleigh area for years, Continue Reading …

The Hunger Games & Weekend Adventures

Hello and happy Sunday! Matt and I have been having a nice weekend here in Chapel Hill. On Friday night we saw The Hunger Games! We both loved it (and have both read all the books — don’t see the movie before you read the books!) — what did you guys think? I was really impressed with how they translated it all into a movie. Plus, it was Continue Reading …

Sore.

Good morning, friends! Boy, was I sore yesterday after Sunday’s Tobacco Road Half Marathon! I’m still pretty sore today! Normal walking is okay, but going down stairs? Yikes. Scary sight: I definitely utilized the hobby/sideways shuffle down the stairs approach. :) Thankfully, though, I’m just super sore — nothing hurts or feels Continue Reading …

Back in the District

Hello from DC! It’s nice to be back in my old stomping groups — and especially my favorite running trail, the C&O Canal. My dad and I hit up the trail for a nice late morning run today. Great running weather out there! We did 5 miles in 40:45 — with negative splits, meaning we got faster as we went. Splits: Mile 1: 8:52 Continue Reading …

A Sluggish 10 Mile Training Run

Good morning! How is it Monday again already?! Weekends just go by way too fast around here. Yesterday, before taking my friend Jessica to the airport, we headed out to the Tobacco Trail in Durham for a workout. I had 10 miles on the docket (for my Tobacco Road Half Marathon, Tarheel 10 Miler, and Reach the Beach Relay training!), and Continue Reading …

Miami by Foot & New Balance Running Skirt Review

Good morning! I’m back in Chapel Hill (aka the frozen tundra — it got COLD since I left, and was even snowing when I drove home last night from the airport at midnight — quite the rude awakening!) after a great weekend in Miami with Matt. Let’s rewind to Saturday, shall we? Matt and I started our day with breakfast in the hotel Continue Reading …
