Sponsored: Dunkin’ Donuts and the DD Perks Loyalty Program

Skyscraper Dunkin Donuts Coffee

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Dunkin’ Brands. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation. I’m participating in the Elf For Health challenge this month – though not necessarily being great about doing the task that’s specific to each day. Last week, one of our tasks was to unsubscribe from email listservs that we don’t read, and while I originally thought I was good on that front, Cyber Monday helped me find a bunch more retailers that I realized I’ve just been deleting instead of taking the extra step to …

Goodbye to All That

Kelli Darin and Roo

When I moved out of NYC, my mom gave me a copy of Goodbye to All That, an anthology of short essays about living in, and leaving, New York. But when I moved to Colorado, I didn’t think I’d be saying goodbye. Sure, I was moving, but I’m lucky enough to work at a job where I travel quite a bit, and I figured I’d be back to New York plenty. So far I’ve been able to visit New York three times since I moved in January, but after this trip back, it’s clear that quite a lot actually changed when I left, …

Race Report: Adirondack Marathon

The Friday/Saturday leading up to the race was fairly uneventful. I worked in Dallas till Friday afternoon, then flew home to NYC on Friday night and pretty much immediately went to bed upon arrival. Saturday morning, I was up early to run errands (by bike!) and pack for the week, then at noon I was off on the Megabus to Albany. Less than 24 hours in NYC! Sometimes I really miss being home. Saturday night, my mom and I had a yummy carb-loading dinner – JP’s spaghetti sauce (which I had made the week before and frozen) atop some really …

Race Report: Boilermaker 15K

I woke up on Sunday morning absolutely exhausted from not enough sleep – though this week, “not enough sleep” has meant anything under 11 hours. These drugs have been knocking me out cold every single night! But while I was sleepy, my neck/back weren’t hurting at all – so I figured I was probably okay to run. My mom was driving, since I can’t drive while on Percocet, which meant that I could spend the whole way sleeping if I wanted to. But once I was in the car, despite yawning constantly, I was actually decently wide awake and didn’t …

Night Before the Race: Boilermaker 15K

I headed upstate to Albany on Friday afternoon, and was pleasantly surprised to find that the two hour bus ride was actually not terrible for my neck – as long as I stayed off the computer, that is. I spent most of the ride calling Dallas doctors and trying to find one who could fit me in early the next week, to no avail. (As I write this on Wednesday, I’m now so used to how impossible it is to get in with a doctor here in Dallas that it seems obvious, but at the time, I was shocked and …
