NYC Weekend Adventures

Hello, my friends! I had quite the weekend up in NYC for my future sister-in-law Morgana’s bachelorette festivities! The city that never sleeps lived up to its name, that’s for sure. :) Before I get into my weekend recap, I wanted to share that my Nutrition for Runners co-author shared a great case study on his blog last week from a runner who Continue Reading …

Rock ‘n’ Roll DC Half Marathon 2016 Race Recap

On Saturday, I ran the Rock ‘n’ Roll DC Half Marathon for the 5th time! This is one of my favorite races and this year was no exception – I had a blast out there. :) For the past couple years, I’ve run this race “just for fun” at a casual pace with friends.

Weekend Adventures

Hey friends! Matt and I stuck around town this weekend and it was nice to have a weekend at home! On Friday night, we stayed in and made a Blue Apron and watched some of the new season of House of Cards (so good/intense – anyone else a fan?). On Saturday morning, I had a nice relaxing morning reading the paper and enjoying some avocado Continue Reading …

Friday Fun

Happy Friday, my friends! I hope your week is ending on a high note. Here’s one of my high notes from this week: My friends Heather, Sokphal, and I met up for a morning run date yesterday and of course had to stop to snag a sunrise shot! It was cold but refreshing out – and we practically had the Lincoln Memorial to ourselves. Sorry for the face Continue Reading …

Adventures in Food + Fitness

Happy Wednesday! It’s a cold and very windy one over here – so lame after the gorgeous warm weather we were teased with earlier this week! I even busted out a sun dress yesterday and a skirt Monday – and now today it’s back to scarves and hats and they are predicting snow for Friday. What the heck, weather? Oh well – I guess it’s a good excuse to Continue Reading …
