Thanks for the support on my struggles with breastfeeding and running. I’m feeling more positive about it today, but it’s definitely not easy!
For today, I wanted to talk about diets and why they fail so often. I was thinking lately about the cyclical nature of diets… have you ever noticed this?

A few months after baby J was born, I wrote about safely returning to running post baby. Then in December, I shared my experience breastfeeding and running and (warning) it was a bit more positive than this one! I’m struggling a bit lately.
In my mind, by 6 months I’d be feeling like my old [...]

Yesterday was mild enough that I could really enjoy the long run outdoors… the snow was pretty, too! I’m finally back up to 17 miles (the longest I did this fall post baby) and it was much easier than the last one, so I feel ready to tackle a few 20 milers before Boston. [...]

This was a rocky week to run a 5k. I remember this happening last year on the challenge too. Kicking off the 5 by the 5th challenge in February almost guarantees an ice or snow storm in the northeast!
So mine was run on the treadmill… but I got it done! I ran a [...]

We had another snow (ice) day on Monday. It’s fun for the first 6 hours or so and then I start running out of energy and ideas… anyone else? The ice made sledding tricky so we mostly stayed indoors.
With all this indoor fun, blogging is on the back burner, but I can handle a [...]

Yesterday kicked off the 5 by the 5th series! Do you have a goal for your 5ks or 5 milers? I know there is a whole range of abilities joining the challenge… some of you are happy just to get out the door, while others have aggressive time goals.
I asked Tina from [...]

Hey, how are you?
I had a much better week. I feel like my energy and motivation is coming back for everything- cooking, training, “mom”ing… let’s hope it continues!
I’m at the point in Boston training now where I should soon get in an 18 miler, but we’ve hit a cold spell. Next weekend [...]

There are a number of foods that can wreak havoc on your metabolism.
These foods that cause inflammation in the body which you may notice in the form of bloating, fatigue, digestive discomfort or more serious symptoms such as swelling and joint pain. Even if you’ve never had digestive issues, inflammatory foods contribute to problems [...]

Do you have any snow where you are?
NYC was preparing for “the worst storm the city has ever seen!” We were supposed to get 1-2 feet of snow by yesterday afternoon, but the storm headed further east than expected and was a bit of a bust.
Still, we got a 5-6 inches and a [...]

I knew that signing up for a January race was a little risky, and sure enough, the snow piled up Saturday morning and prevented me from making it into Brooklyn in time for the race.
So I joined a local “race” on Sunday instead. It was a casual event. Basically, a group of nearly 50 [...]
