I was not compensated for this post, but I did receive a complimentary session at the Urban Wellness Clinic. All opinions and most jokes are my own.

A month ago, the lovely folks at the Urban Wellness Clinic reached out and invited me to meet with Dr. Emily Kiberd, a New York City-based chiropractor and luxury wellness media expert in pain management and movement therapy.

I did a little research and learned that Urban Wellness Clinic is a sought after wellness center located in the building above Quality Italian (57th and 6th Ave), you know the place with the famed chicken parm pizza? Personally, I think it’s much too salty, but that’s commentary for a different venue.

Anyway, people seem to love Urban Wellness Clinic. Just check out their endless stream of 5-star Yelp reviews. Dr. Kiberd works with a number of New York Athletic Club athletes and Olympic hopefuls. So sure, yes, I would love to check this place out.

Hi ladies and gents. If you’re observing Passover, first good luck! Second, check out these healthy recipes that are all Passover-friendly.

Last week was all about not running so damn much now that the Cherry Blossom race is over. So instead of running, I watched a documentary about an ultra-marathon and felt totally inspired. (Video at the bottom of this post!)

Here’s what went down last week:

Last weekend I ran the Cherry Blossom 10 miler for the second time.

I love this race since it’s largely flat and 10 miles is a great distance. Don’t get me wrong, I am not saying it’s easy. I still have to train for something like this. (Wisdom: Train for all races!) Personally, I cannot *wing* a 10 mile race, but I could maybe wing a 4 mile one.

And about that training, it only went so so. I’ve been running slower now than this time last year, I have no idea why. But it’s fine. I think these ups and downs are to be expected.

Anyway, we took the train down and got to DC at 2pm on Saturday. We dropped our stuff off at our hotel. I like to pick a hotel walking distance from the race start. Even if we end up taking a cab to the race (which we did) it’s nice to have the option to walk home.

Hi everyone. Thanks so much for the Insta-love while I was in Colorado. As a life-long East Coaster, I must admit mountain-living really suits me. There might be less oxygen up but there is an abundance of heart. I walked into a juice/oat shop in Denver (yup, that’s a thing, hi friends at ProsperOats), and as I waited for them to mix up my juice, I joined a conversation that EVERYONE in the shop was having. I left knowing each patrons’ plans for the rest of the day (obviously they were all going to go exercise/be outside/plant something).

Now I’m back in NYC growling at everyone on the subway and walking with my neck craned into my phone’s screen to avoid unsanctioned human interaction.

Here’s what happened last week in the Centennial state.
