Hi friends! It’s rainy in DC today but I had a fun morning – my friends Kathleen, Chelsea, Karen, and I all made it to the 7 a.m. boot camp class at Urban Athletic Club – PARTYYYY! Waking up at 6:10 sucks a lot less when you know you’ll be meeting up with a bunch of buddies. :) I’m so lucky to have friends who are up for having early morning Continue Reading …

Running the Washington DC Christmas Trees

I had the most fun night last night – my friend Sokphal and I decided to do a running tour of the DC Christmas trees – because what better way to see them than on foot, right?! I’ve been wanting to do a Christmas tree run around DC, and great minds think alike because when I was texting with Sokphal earlier this week about having a run date, she Continue Reading …

Hey friends! Matt and I are back in DC after a fun weekend on Long Island! We were in Great Neck, New York for the wedding of one of Matt’s good friends from Pittsburgh; they were roommates in DC with some others after college, too, so our whole DC crew was in attendance, which was awesome.

Thank you to Ricola® Herb & Throat drops for sponsoring this post as part of an ongoing campaign with Socialstars. #swissherbs I always love when other bloggers share random peeks into their lives – day in the life posts, Q&A surveys and coffee dates, what they buy when they grocery shop, and what’s in their bag/purse. I’ve shared a number Continue Reading …

Jicama Cucumber Salad

how to prepare jicama

Friends – is anyone else really into jicama lately? It’s an edible root that looks a bit like a turnip, and you peel it and eat the inside, which is crisp and juicy – kind of like a pear/water chestnut combo. We enjoyed a super simple but really delicious slaw/salad using jicama earlier this week that I thought was worth sharing. No fancy Continue Reading …

Brooks Cold Weather Running Accessories Giveaway

Hi friends! I was up with the sun this morning to meet up with my track group. It was cold (in the low 30’s) but very clear – the sun was just starting to rise when we met. Perfect running weather, if you ask me! This morning was the first time in at least a month that I really pushed it on pace at the track. Now that I’m training officially again Continue Reading …

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 …
