This weekend was a rare summer occasion. I stayed in the city! The weather looked awful and I had a ton of packing to do. Friday night, Roomie and I went out for sushi on Newbury Street. We were sat right away outdoors which never happens at Snappy Sushi. It was refreshingly chilly, a nice […]

This morning, I got up and had a list of errands to complete before my 5K. First up, City Hall Plaza for a moving permit. I decided to walk the mile since I’d be only running about 23 minutes later in the afternoon. I stopped by Whole Foods to pick up a few items to […]

It is hot, hot, hot!  This morning I woke up early and got in my most difficult day of interval training.  I did cardio workout #2 from my post earlier this week.  Afterwards, I watched my heart rate monitor as I burned an additional 100 calories after I had stopped.  That was fun. I needed […]

This past weekend, I volunteered at the New Balance Girls On The Run 5K on the Esplanade.  Although I am not a coach for GOTR, I was invited to help out after my little gig with The Life Well Laughed Project.   Read about my experience here.   I would love to be a coach […]

Just got back from a 35 minute interval workout: 5 min – Warm Up 0.25 mi – Fast 0.25 mi – Steady Repeat until .25 from home 0.25 mi – Cool down Repeat until home!  This is one of my favorite workouts.  If you don’t have a GPS or iPhone or Treadmill, run fast for […]

I posted on Twitter how difficult my run was this afternoon and got a ton of feedback from followers telling me they thought it was just them!  They were relieved to hear I had a similar experience. On the east coast, we are experiencing a pretty drastic rise in temps and mugginess.  It seems as […]
