Happy Friday, friends!  Did everyone have a nice Memorial Day Weekend?  What’d ya get up to?

A few things before we get started.  Feeling stressed? I enjoyed this post from The Blissful Mind on how to calm anxious thoughts. On a similar topic, my pal Ali Feller wrote an article for Well & Good that’s well worth a read: “The (very controllable) reason you might be more stressed than you were three years ago.”

Now, on to last week’s workouts:

Happy Tuesday!

Coming back to the real world after Thanksgiving is tough. I had a busy weekend with visits to my parents’ house in Long Island, Matt’s uncle’s home in NJ, my college bestie’s first grown up home (with husband and brand new baby included!) in Dobbs Ferry,  and more and more and more.

I made a real rookie mistake of going to SoHo on Black Friday (I was headed to a yoga class in Nolita). I forgot that throngs of people actually shop in stores and not on exclusively on the internet. (Can someone explain to me why?)

I wrote this last week, before the election. Put more finely, before the election broke my heart and left me shocked and scared.

This post seems more trite than usual now. But I am not sure it makes sense to  go completely dark because of the election’s outcome when admittedly this blog has nothing to do with politics. The upbeat tone of this post doesn’t match my mood today. But maybe it will encourage positive feelings soon. I know I can’t and won’t feel sad forever.

Hi everyone!  As expected last weekend’s NYC marathon has given me running fever.

When I got home from spectating my pal Camilla on Sunday, I started immediately googling local races to sign up for. Then Matt reminded me I was ALREADY running in two races in the next two weeks already (The Race to Deliver in Central Park and a Turkey Trot with my family in Long Island on Thanksgiving). Perhaps I should focus more on training and less on purchasing entry to more races?

If any of you ran the marathon I would LOVE to hear your story! Let me know in the comments please. 

OR if you’re inspired by the marathon to start running, check out this list of free run clubs in Manhattan.

Hi pals! How was your week? Mine was pretty hectic.

It was a real treat to leave the city this weekend and head to Great Barrington. It’s pretty real how much a slower paced environment can chill you out.

Song of the week: “Jorge Regula” by the Moldy Peaches. You’ll be singing along in no time. This is a twee call and response jam.
