Food Friday – Edition IV – Lobstah in an Elevator!

Last Friday night Jay and I went out to a gluttonous dinner in the north end of Boston.  Those of you who live here/have traveled here probably know that the north end is full of wonderful Italian restaurants and bakeries.  We had a great meal at Trattoria di Monica and then hit up Modern Bakery…

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.

Am I a Potential Soccer Prodigy?!

Or being completely awkward at soccer, which was probably more the case.  Prodigy or not, I attended my first session of NikeNYC’s “Pitch Fit” last night.  It’s a soccer-themed workout held on a turf field at Pier 40 in Manhattan, and the latest addition to our Nike programming.  The session was designed to get everyone…

Runners Might be Crazy

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…

Hello World!

Hi!  My name is Hillary and I like to exercise.  Partly because it makes me feel good and partly because I like to eat things like cookies.  I think the two parts are equally balanced.  I’m a resident of the lovely borough of Manhattan in New York City and like to think that I take…
