Summer Corn and Tomato Salad

I’m not sure I’ve mentioned this before, but my mother is a pretty phenomenal cook.  She cooked dinner pretty much every night of the first 18 years of my life and to this day, cooks when I visit.  It’s a pretty good deal.

Everybody Has an Arch Nemesis

And speed workouts are mine.  They happen on Thursdays, and I think I’m just generally tired from the work week at that point.  Never the less, I saw Thursday night’s speed workout posted on Instagram, appropriately underestimated it, and showed up.  In hind sight, I’m glad that I went.  At the time… not as much.

Why Run on Saturday Mornings?

Well, why not run on Saturday mornings?  My rationale would be that getting up early on a Saturday to go spend the next hour or more panting is a tough sell.  It’s something that I struggle with, but this Saturday I got myself out of bed, in the shower, and off to the Nike Saturday…

Jay’s Awesome Southwest Chicken Chili

By the grace of all good things, I am one of those women who has a partner who willingly cooks. He actually likes to cook.  Most nights, I come home from the office and dinner is waiting for me.  Sometime there’s a small task, like reheating something, but most of the time there isn’t.  All…

Mission Accomplished: Boston

With the Fit all packed up and a long night of driving ahead of us, we (slowly) left the Manhattan skyline behind us and headed north to Boston for the night.  It took us about 4 and a half hours to get there; we arrived about 12:30am, completely exhausted.  After quickly checking into our hotel…

Runners Might be Crazy

Yeah, we probably are – not in a clinical manner mind you, but we probably all have a degree, or three of crazy.  We run through the hot summers, and through the snow and ice covered winters, through bone chilling wind, and through the raw, cold and rainy spring days.  We say things like,”Yeah, it…

Coffee Banana Deliciousness

Hello Everyone! I’m hope you’re all fabulous.  Since I didn’t run last night due to my mom being in town, I don’t have any reports of running adventures.  Instead, today’s feature is my breakfast!  It’s actually more exciting than it sounds.  Since I spend my days in an office, I need quick and portable breakfast…

Track Attack!

The track is back, baby!  The weather is showing signs of improvement and the Nike Run Club is back at the inconic Icahn Stadium on Randall’s Island for our weekly Track Night workout.  It’s nothing short of amazing… 75 runners, the lights on the track, music blasting over the sound system, high fives after each…

Swoosh Life

Happy Wednesday, everyone!  It’s a beautiful day in New York City and my taxes are done and filed, so I’m a happy girl. Since this blog is about my fitness life, I thought I’d share the organization that helps me reach my goals.  It’s a little brand that most of you have probably heard of…

Mondays are for Burpees

And push ups, and wall sits, and high knees, and squats, and more.  Mondays are for Nike Training Club, otherwise knows as, NTC.  About 75 of Nike NYC’s most dedicated show up to the roof deck of Niketown in Manhattan for an hour long boot camp style class that beautifully compliments our running.  This session…
