It was interesting to hear everyone’s thoughts on drinking before races. You will be proud to know I stuck to ONE drink and I made it count (vodka martini, my favorite).
Now I’m alcohol free for the next few weeks.
This has been a very long week. I can’t remember the last time I was [...]
As you all know, long weekends are pretty much the best thing on earth. My office is also closing at 3 pm today so the weekend will start early. Here are five things I’m looking forward to this weekend:
NOT traveling! As much as I love seeing family and friends, I am a homebody at [...]
This weekend I will be a bridesmaid for the 4th time….for my brother-in-law Matt and my soon to be sister-in-law Kristen’s wedding.
Matt, me an Kristen in Akumal, MX
Then in a few weeks I’ll be a bridesmaid in my brother Kevin and my other soon to be sister-in-law Vanessa’s wedding.
This week did not go according to plan AT ALL.
It started with late night focus groups on Tuesday. Add in a very busy work week, a lost bike lock, and one night of insomnia and my workout (and blogging) schedule was royally screwed.
Today I am heading up to NYC and Long [...]
Tonight I’m going to a midnight showing of Harry Potter. Yes, I’m twelve years old and totally geeking out about it. I’m going with Neil, his younger brothers, and Colleen. Colleen and I went to the HP midnight book release back when the last book came out, so it only seems appropriate we see [...]
I’ve never been so happy for a Friday. First of all, last week was our last long weekend until Memorial Day so I think this week dragged on more than usual. Second of all, I have hardly any plans this weekend. Between work travel, and visiting friends/having visitors, I’m ready for a weekend where I [...]
Even though last night was a late night for work (at focus groups, so I didn’t get home until around 10 pm), I managed to get out of bed around 5:40 am this morning for my run.
This run was SO much better than last week. For one, I put some new tunes on [...]
Today is my rest day so I have nothing interesting to report on the exercise front. I did get a nice 1.2 mile walk with the pup, and will get another one later today at least. I’m a bit sore from the class yesterday.
Last night Neil and I went to Cedar for a dinner [...]
It’s going to be a busy one!
After work I headed up to Bethesda. My mom is already taking time off to get stuff ready for the wedding, and my dad is retired so they grilled dinner for me. I brought my own veggie burger and they grilled a ton of veggies.
Today is Bike to Work Day here in DC. Even though I have been biking to work for 2 years, this was my first year participating. (Read my tips on commuting safely by bike here).
I arrived in Freedom Plaza just after 8 am. The plaza was set up with tons of tents. It was [...]
