Hi, guys! Happy Monday to you! How was your weekend? Mine was quite awesome and kicked off with a FUN girls’ night on Martha’s Vineyard. One of our friends from CrossFit has an incredible house there and invited a group of us to spend the night. It was SUCH a great time with a seriously wonderful group of women! In CNC fashion, let’s do a High, Low, High post to recap! 🙂 HIGH: Taking a SoulCycle…

Last Sunday, my mom, sister, and I enjoyed a fun outing together – just the 3 of us. We headed up to Portsmouth, New Hampshire for lunch and a show. Now that my sister and I have little ones, it’s tough for all of us to get together like we used to, but we made it a priority this time. When I discovered that my cousin Andrea was going to be in The Who’s Tommy…

Last week, Mal and I had the opportunity to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary at Mirbeau Inn & Spa in Plymouth, Massachusetts, and it was a pretty darn incredible experience! 🙂 The nice people at Mirbeau offered me a complimentary spa treatment and lunch in exchange for a blog post, and I was more than willing to participate in the partnership. The timing worked well with our anniversary, so I invited Mal along for…

Today is quite the special day. Ten years ago, I married my best friend. And it’s safe to say that I am damn lucky! Mal is truly the greatest partner, and there’s no other wonderful (and kind of weird) person I’d rather spend my life with. We recently got to celebrate this milestone when we were in Oregon last week. We took advantage of our very kind family, who watched Quinn overnight, and took a…

Hi, friends and hello from Seattle! I’m spending one more night here before I fly to Redmond, Oregon for a fun-filled week with the Haupert clan. I’m solo tonight at the hotel, so it’s the perfect time to recap an epic weekend with the Brooks Running Run Happy Ambassadors. This is my 4th year with Brooks, and this trip might just be my favorite yet! I had such a wonderful time with an awesome bunch…

Can you believe that Memorial Day and July 4th weekend are just around the corner?! Summer is almost here, which means lots of weekend getaways and quick overnight trips. I don’t know why it seems so much easier to pack up and go in the summer season, but I love it! After our recent weekend away in Vermont, I was looking through my duffles/totes and realized it was time for an upgrade. It’s so nice…

Our trip to Stowe, Vermont was quite the weekend full of highs and lows. Our friends invited us, along with two other couples, to spend Friday and Saturday night at their condo at Top Notch Resort & Spa. (Remember when Mal and I stayed there back in 2010? It’s such a great place!) So, in total, were 9 of us – 8 adults and one almost 4 year old (Quinn), which made for an interesting…

We had such a nice time on our family vacation last week. We rented a house in Gilbert, Arizona with Mal’s family, so we had quite the crew – 8 adults and 4 kids under 4 years old. At times, it felt like a circus with all of our crazy monkeys running around, but it was so much fun, and I know we all enjoyed the quality time together. So many wonderful memories were made…

We’re home! We just landed in Boston a little while ago and we’re now sitting in an insane amount of rush hour traffic on the way home. So, I decided to write a quick blog post from my phone about what I ate during our travels home, which is inspired by the pear, purple carrot & blueberry pouch that I’m eating right now. Quinn didn’t like it, and I didn’t want it to go to…

Hi, guys! Just wanted to pop in and share some highlights from my trip to Austin last week as well as some healthy travel tips you might not have tried yet. I think most of us are familiar with the common ones, like pack nutritious snacks or wear your sneakers, but I rounded up a few that I recently started doing that maybe you haven’t heard. If you think they sound like ideas that would…

With Christmas just days away, I wanted to share some tips for finding the right CrossFit gym – just in case you’re planning a drop-in while you’re away from home. I love to travel and I love CrossFit, so I try my best to get a WOD in when I’m on the go. Some people are restaurant people; I’m a gym person. But part of the fun of CrossFit is the community, so I try to…

It’s been a few weeks since my trip to Israel. I’ve had time to process my experience, and I wanted to share some of the things that surprised me about Israeli culture during my stay. To be totally honest, I was a bit apprehensive about taking this journey to across the world. I mean, Israel is in the Middle East and, with everything happening there and what I’ve heard on the news, I wondered if…

If you’ve read here for more than a second, you know that I love iced coffee, and I love STRONG iced coffee. So I was in heaven in Israel, where they’re definitely known for their coffee culture. I basically caffeinated my way through Tel Aviv. I actually tried to ordered decaf one time, but it was lost in translation, so I rationalized that I needed to caffeine to balance out my jet-lag. 🙂 One of the best…

What a blast! Put the Tel Aviv Night Run in my top 10 favorite races! Ok, so, truthfully, I’m typically not much of a night runner. I’m a grandma and usually go to bed before the race’s start time, but, wow, the energy at this 10k was something else. The second that we arrived at the event, you could FEEL it. It was quite the party atmosphere with lights and music, and it immediately made…

Hi, guys! Happy Monday and greetings from Israel! 🙂 I’m having such a great time here and couldn’t wait for my usual “5 for Friday” blog post, so I decided to bump it to today, so I can tell you a little about some of the incredible experiences I’ve already had here. We’re just halfway through the trip, but I have SO MUCH to tell you guys! Here are just some highlights! FASCINATING – Jerusalem. What…
