Surviving My First Blog Conference: BLEND Retreat 2013

This weekend, I was lucky enough to go to Utah for a really neat event: the BLEND Retreat. While BLEND is written in all caps like an acronym, it’s actually a cute little portmanteau for Blogging Friends. I love the “Blends” I’ve made writing this blog, traveling for races, and at fitness events in NYC, so what better way to meet lots of new “Blends” than a weekend retreat to one of my favorite states in the country? (It also didn’t hurt that I learned the Ogden Marathon was scheduled for the same weekend, so I could kill two birds …

I’m an animal!

After my post yesterday morning about how much I sucked at weight lifting, it should come as no surprise that I was looking for any opportunity to better my fitness. Therefore, when I received a last minute invite to join some other fun area bloggers for a “Hunger Games”-inspired workout with Daily Burn, I immediately accepted… but I worried about what this would entail. Archery? Wall climbing? Boxing? I’m not even remotely good at any of the three of those, and I had no idea what I was getting myself into. When I arrived at the Daily Burn headquarters, though, …

Lumps and all, the body of an athlete

Lately, I have not been too happy with my body. Namely, I’ve been unhappy with the way my tummy has grown round, creating a muffin top of beer and nachos and margaritas when I wear my favorite jeans. While I still believe in eating all these things in moderation, I need to get better about making sure that “moderation” does not mean “every single night.” It has become less common for me to eat a healthy meal than it is for me to eat an indulgent one, and that is creating a bit of a problem. But this weekend, I …

Fabulously Fit Friday

Today has gone mostly as planned. Woke up at 6am and headed over to Central Park, where I met Katelyn, and we jogged across the park and down 86th Street to Athleta UES. We were taking a “cardio conditioning” class, and for reasons unbeknownst to us, we were told to bring a yoga mat. In case you were wondering how much a yoga mat weighs, it is approximately 50 pounds (not the 5 pounds that I would have guessed). At least, that was my assumption given that it made me run as slowly as if I had gone on a …

TGIT? Nope, not a typo. Thank Goodness It’s Thursday! My consulting buddy Adam and I often joke about Thursdays being the “consultant’s Friday,” because in the crazy world of consulting, we travel to our clients on Monday morning and return home on Thursday evening. While Friday doesn’t quite become a three day weekend, we have the choice of working from our local office or from home on Fridays – and unless there’s an event or other reason to go into the office, I usually choose the latter. On Fridays, it’s expected that we’ll spend some of our time supporting the …
