Review: YMX by Yellowman

Recently, I’ve been biking a lot. It’s been almost a full year since I first started taking Flywheel Texas, but ever since my injury prevented me from lifting, it’s now become the only one of my usual classes in Dallas that I can still take. Meanwhile, Flywheel is currently running a three week “Grab your passport and FLY” challenge, in which participants get a stamp on their passport for each Texas region instructor they try. The combination of these two things means it’s pretty much all biking, all the time – so I was really excited when YMX by Yellowman …

Whirlwind (Long) Weekend

What a whirlwind (long) weekend! Friday was fairly low-key until the evening, when I ushered a friend off to a second date that I later found out went fabulously well. Following my pep talk, I stayed to hang out at the bar (Valhalla – one of my favorite beer bars in the city) for an hour or so, and then it was off to my friend Jon’s “Influencers” cocktail party. Jon is one of those people who seems to know anyone and everyone, and a few years ago, he began hosting dinner parties that brought people with very different backgrounds …

Weekend Recap: 80 Miles in Colorado Wine Country

Boy, it took me a week and a half to write my Wineglass Marathon race report – and now I’ve already had another epic weekend that I want to write about! I really need to get better about blogging in a timely manner… After some morning meetings in Dallas, Friday found me on a tiny plane to Grand Junction, Colorado. The second I stepped off the plane (and actually, even while we were coming down for our landing and I was staring nose-to-glass out the window), I felt happy and at home. As BF teased me about many times throughout …

The Many Benefits of Alcohol-Free August

Last weekend, I felt kind of lame about how my alcohol-free August was shaping up. As one commenter pointed out, there is a lot to do in New York… so why wasn’t I going out and doing those things? Well, for a few reasons, the first being that while there is a lot to do during the day without drinking, it’s just not really possible to run errands/go shopping/do other things on my to do list late on a Friday or Saturday night! Yes, New York is “the city that never sleeps,” but 90% of the people you see out after …

It’s My Birthday! (Announcing: Laura’s Birthday Fun Run!)

As I obnoxiously screamed to anyone and everyone last year after a champagne brunch, “IT’S MY BIRTHDAY!” 🙂 Last night, I hit the gym and was totally euphoric about how well I did (I was motivated!)… but then I crashed big time. Perhaps we can blame it on low blood sugar (I lifted hard and then had a snafu with my dinner order that made me wait longer than I would have liked to refuel), but I found myself really sad that I was alone in a hotel room and not really looking forward to my birthday. In the past …
