    Balancing Work and Fitness

    To be honest, life has felt chaotic over the last few weeks. I returned from vacation, started a new job, returned from another trip, and am preparing for more travel later this month. To be clear, I’m not complaining about being busy. Instead, I feel like I was organizing the cards in my hand, when someone threw the rest of the deck in the air. It’s been an adventure to pick up those cards and reorganize them. New schedule, new faces, new goals. I’m learning that you can’t get attached to routine. I’m also learning a lot about the importance of mono-tasking and getting enough sleep.

    Timex Sport Partnership and Giveaway

    Since March, I’ve been partnering with Timex Sport to test and feature their watches. You may have seen some shots of the Sleek 50 and Sleek 150 herehere, and in a few other places.

This month, I’ll be sharing the Sleek 150. Keep reading for more information.

    Why I Quit ClassPass (And Other Running Updates)

    I decided to leave ClassPass (including its Ambassador Program) on Friday. This post isn’t meant to criticize a service that’s been a large part of my fitness routine for three years. Instead, I’m focusing on why the updates to the service no longer work for me. I’m also sharing updates on my race schedule. Spoiler Alert: I’m no longer running the Brooklyn Half. Keep reading for details.

    Adventures in Florence and Barcelona

    Adventures in Florence and Barcelona

    Thank you all for the kind words about my new job! This is my first week, and it’s been a very positive change. While I’m not going to share a full recap about my trip with B to Florence and Barcelona, I did want to share some photos. These cities are too beautiful not to share, especially with those who have never visited. After seeing this post, you may be moving Italy and Spain to the top of your bucket list. What’s your favorite country you’ve visited?

    It's Okay to Change Your Goals

    It’s Okay to Change Your Goals

    In an effort to keep my privacy and to publish relevant content, I don’t often talk about my full-time career on my blog. Today, I’m opening up to share how a change in my career (and an international trip) will affect my training schedule. As a blogger, I aim to relate to the average person. I know many athletes have full-time jobs and other commitments outside of running. Sometimes those commitments require you to shift your training goals, and that’s okay. Change is good.
