Happy Friday! I can’t believe two weeks have flown by since I ran SeaWheeze in Vancouver. I typically like to share a recap in the week following the race, but I’ve been busy settling back into a routine. From mid-July to mid-August, I was traveling for about 20 days (Los Angeles, San Francisco, The Hamptons x 2, and Vancouver). I’m glad to be back in New York to finish out the summer, but let’s take a look at my most recent half marathon.
I mentioned earlier this summer that I would be working with nutritionist Michelle Pellizzon to help me feel and perform my best while training for the New York City Marathon. Michelle, who is also an ultra marathoner, has been guiding me through a phased nutrition approach that matches my training schedule and has offered to share some of her secrets with all of you. Keep reading for Michelle’s story and tips for setting yourself up for success in the kitchen.
I remember exactly where I was when I decided to start a blog. Three summers ago, I was walking into Central Park at 72nd Street, thinking about sharing my boutique fitness adventures. As a recent graduate, I wasn’t making much money and would research fitness studios and instructors online before investing in each class. At the time, each class was a major investment. After reading reviews and later sharing my experiences with friends, I decided that other people must be searching for reviews, as well. I wanted to share my own stories, from a non-fitness professional perspective. Today, EC.com has a similar goal, but this blog has opened more doors for me than I thought possible. Each year is filled with more adventure than the last.
I spent my 28th birthday at Propel Co:Labs. Aside from Propel’s presence at IDEA World earlier this month, the brand held a collaborative event in both New York and Los Angeles to launch its new flavored electrolyte waters. Keep reading to find out about the surprise musical guest, plus the three workouts that left my legs sore for days.
On Wednesday night, I arrived in Los Angeles to attend BlogFest at IDEA World with Propel. I landed around 10pm and headed downtown, where the ESPYs were wrapping up. I went straight to bed after checking in at the hotel, as we had an early wakeup call yesterday. At 5:30am, the Propel blogger crew headed to Santa Monica to meet Gunnar Peterson for a workout.
