Yoga At The Brewery

I’ve done yoga in the middle of Times Square, in a blocked off alley way across from a Whole Foods, on a hilltop, and inside a Lululemon with all the pretty clothes tempting me while I was in down dog. Two weeks ago, we practiced yoga in a new unconventional spot….Saltwater Brewery. Know[...]

Building a Complete Home Gym

This has been the longest stretch I’ve gone without belonging to a big box gym since I was a newly minted entry-level PR person barely scraping by in NYC.  Getting into a long-term relationship with a gym is almost as serious as getting into a long-term relationship with a significant other. [...]

Marathon Training Week 15

Like many runners I know I am very superstitious when it comes to my pre-run routine. The foods I eat, the way I lay out my clothes, down to what socks I am wearing and whether they match my outwear. All training I ran in conditions that most likely would not be the same as race […][...]

Marathon Training: Week 9

I wavered a bit this week. I was just excruciatingly tired.  I wasn’t really sleeping that well and the temperatures reached “hot as hell” proportions at my normal run times. I still got three runs in….though I feel guilty about my long run turning into almost nothing. Physi[...]

Marathon Training: Week 8

This is what I like to call the cross over week. It also happens to be half way through my training plan…coincidence? I think not. I call it cross over, because it is the first week where your long run gets you to the point where you are committing to doing more than a half. […][...]

Workout Review: Yoga with Live Music at Colony Hotel

Whenever I mention my love for yoga someone tells me I need to check out yoga at the Colony Hotel.  It is led by Keith Fox and has live music with a rotating group of musicians. Know before you go….I went to sign up online, paid for the class, and then got a little confused […][...]

Marathon Training Week 3

This was an exciting week for me. Mostly because I was finally linking up with a running group to keep me motivated and I would get a new route! Thankfully this was a “back off” week. I say thankfully, because I had some terrible runs that left me scared I had already injured myself R[...]

Marathon Training Week 2

This week was all about ensuring I didn’t get off track while traveling. Luckily, I arranged my travel (and fun activities) in a way that actually made it quite easy. Monday: Rest Day Resting on Mondays is quickly becoming my favorite thing. Mostly because I am exhausted after the weekend, eve[...]
