Running into Spring + Avocado Toast Love

Hey friends – happy Wednesday! I’m LOVING March weather in DC this year – usually March is a rough month because you’re so over the cold but apparently this year spring is here early. :) I’m also really loving that it’s so light in the evenings again – totally worth dealing with dark morning workouts! Light evenings make the days feel so much Continue Reading …

Half Marathon Ready + Fitness Week in Review

Hi friends! I’m getting pumped because tomorrow is the Rock ‘n’ Roll DC half marathon (<—last year’s recap)! This is one of my favorite DC races – I first started running it in 2011 when it was still the National Half Marathon, then ran it again in 2013 and 2014 and 2015 when it became a Rock ‘n’ Roll series race! Hard to believe this will be my Continue Reading …

Why I Show Up Early for Yoga

A few months ago, I started doing one small thing differently: showing up a little early for yoga class. It had started to occur to me that while yoga is my calming happy place (see also: Why I Love Yoga), I was often cutting it really close on timing, showing up to class with seconds to spare, harried and stressed. I was joking with it about a Continue Reading …

It’s been another busy week over here – especially because Matt Continue Reading …

Weekend Adventures

Hi friends! It was a nice and low key weekend here in DC! On Friday, I started the weekend a little early with a late afternoon run with my high school BFF Jenny. As I mentioned before, she had her second child a few months ago and is working to build back up her running endurance as she trains for a March half marathon. We planned to give 6 miles Continue Reading …

Weekend Adventures

Hello from the train on the way from DC to Philadelphia! I’m heading up for the day for my annual holiday meet up with my college BFFs, Turner and Kris. Turner lives in Philly, and Kris lives in Paris but comes home for the holidays, so every year for a few years now we’ve done a little pre-Christmas meet up in the city. It’s an easy train ride Continue Reading …

Why I Love Yoga

I went to a yoga class during lunch today, which is one of my favorite things to do lately because it really resets the workday and puts me in a wonderful calm mindset. After I finished, rolling up my mat and changing back into work clothes, I realized that it was the 3rd time I’ve done yoga this week. Wow. That’s a lot of yoga! It’s crazy because Continue Reading …

Pittsburgh Trip Finale + Cyber Monday Deals

Hi friends! Matt and I are making our way home from Pittsburgh later today – we decided to skip the major traffic and stay one extra night. We’re working from his parent’s house until this afternoon when we’ll push off and take turns finishing work in the car! I did a little work this morning, then treated myself to mid-morning yoga class at Salt Continue Reading …
