It’s officially summer, and temperatures are rising. This weekend, I move to Brooklyn. Next weekend, I begin training for the New York City Marathon. I’ve been working with Matt Wilpers to finalize my training plan. While I’ll be training at the hottest time of year, I’ve been focusing on hydration more than usual. It’s the perfect time to introduce my partnership with Propel. New Yorkers, keep reading for how you can get involved!
Have you ever read a blog or social media post that you relate to so much, you could have written it yourself? That’s when I feel like social media is at its best, when you have a “YES! Me too!” kind of moment. Yesterday, I was reading a new blog post by Sam of Catching Dragonfly. While recent events in her life differ from what’s going on in mine, we share similar feelings about the accumulation of stuff. Especially having too much stuff during a time of transition.
While at the beach over the long weekend, I realized that today (June 1) calls for celebration in my life–for three reasons! Monday marked five years since I moved to New York. Two years ago, I reflected on what it means to live in this crazy city. Today, I’m celebrating three pieces of my life that likely wouldn’t exist without this city.
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.
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 here, here, and in a few other places. In fact, I’ll be partnering with Timex over the next year to continue trying their latest styles. And you’re in luck! Each quarter, I’ll be hosting a giveaway of one of my new favorites. This month, I’ll be sharing the Sleek 150. Keep reading for more information.
