Reporting live from my parents’ house! Happy Thanksgiving!
I took the train out to the ‘burbs last night to spend Thanksgiving with my family.
We are a small bunch at Thanksgiving – just my immediate family – but my mom and I were talking about adding some new traditions this year. We both like to run (she ran a 5 miler in Central Park this month and placed 6th in her age group!!) so we convinced my dad and sister to do a Turkey Trot in the town next to ours.
Are you waiting at the edge of your seat waiting for an update on my injured ankle? Do I have the post for you!
After being told my ankle would take 1-2 years to heal, I sought out a second opinion. Does that timeline seem crazy to anyone else? I’m relatively new to sports injuries.
I feel lucky to live in a city like New York where there are just so many incredible doctors. As a patients we are able to have large options for even the most specific of needs, like ankle specialists. It’s a fact that no one I’ve spoke to about my injury so far even so much as looks at a knee.
I do all my own stunts.
I haven’t gone rock climbing since I was a kid. My sleep-away camp had a rock climbing wall and I have fuzzy vague memories of liking it. After some Ecuadorian rappelling fun this summer, I was looking for a reason to put back on a harness.
It’s time to wish a belated happy 6-month-aversary to Cuckoolemon!
Happy 6 Months, Cuckoolemon!
The first blog post went up on my birthday, May 14. I figured the Facebook birthday attention would be a great built-in audience for sharing this little project.
Since then I have had a blast writing this blog. As of today, I’ve published 33 posts. To celebrate, I wanted to share a few of my favorites from the last six months.
Hello from freezing New York City.
When it gets cold my whole life approach is threatened. My posture gets worse as I shrink into myself to huddle for warmth. I am the frozen hunchback of the Upper West Side. (I photoshopped an example but it’s too aesthetically displeasing to share.)
That’s not a reason to give up. Don’t turn your apartment into a hermitage of slack. Get out there. While everyone else is hibernating and putting on their winter weight, get awesome triceps. (Fact: Triceps are the muscle that make you think: “OW OW” when you look at an arm.)
Here are some ideas on how to make the cold weather work for your workout:
