    Hi, friends! My day started bright and early with a knock on my hotel room door from Monica, who arrived on a red-eye flight from California just 30 minutes earlier. I thought she might want to sleep after a long cross country flight, but she rallied for an early morning run. Monica said running helps […]

    Holy hills!!! The course for the More|Fitness Half Marathon kicked my butt this morning! Ashley and Theodora weren’t joking when they warmed me about the hills in Central Park. I knew about Harlem Hill because I ran it last summer during BlogHer, but I didn’t realize just how difficult the other “rolling” hills would be! Yowsahs. The National Half […]
