If it were possible, all of my runs would take place on rugged trails shaded by trees and surrounded by wildlife. However, I live in New York City, so instead most of my runs takes place on paved cement and surrounded by a jungle of tall concrete buildings. I guess you could compare the city dwellers roaming the streets to wildlife at least.

That’s Too Much Running!

inspirational-running-quote

Hungry Readers, on Monday we will be 16 weeks out from the New York City Marathon!!!!

That’s right, there’s 16 weeks until November 2. How crazy is that?

Do wanna hear something that you might think is even more crazy? I’m not going start training for another 2 weeks.

That’s right. I only plan on training for 14 weeks. Why?

You Really Need to Exercise Outside

exercise-outside

I can’t believe I’m only just realizing this now, but the workout that I did with Discover Outdoors¬†on Tuesday¬†and my interview with running coach Eric Orton helped open my eyes to the fact that one of the main reasons I love running, is because I get to do it outside!

If I had the choice between working out in the gym or going for a run, I’d choose running every time. And it’s not just because I enjoy running more than lifting weights or other forms of exercise, but more so because I’d rather spend time and exercise outside.

I guess I sort of knew this all along, but I only really started thinking about it recently.

34 Thoughts Everyone Has During a Spin Class

almost-died-spin-class

On Monday I attended my first ever cycling class at Flywheel. While this wasn’t my first time spinning (I’ve been to plenty of spin classes before), I realized that I still felt like a total newb!

And it wasn’t because it was my first time at Flywheel; the class was pretty similar to every other spin class I’ve ever been to. I’m convinced that it’s because there’s some secret cult you need to be initiated into if you want to be really good at spinning.

Would You Eat Veggie Flavored Ice Cream?

No, seriously…. Would you? Because it exists.

OK, it’s actually less like ice cream and more like a sorbet. The point is, it’s a frozen treat, it’s called Ortaggi and I tried it last night after my first ever spin class at Flywheel. (Yesterday was a day of trying so many new things!)

Now I know, unless you just really love veggies, veggie flavored snacks don’t really sound so appealing. Luckily, last night I was surprised to find this extra healthy post-workout treat was refreshingly tasty.

20 Thoughts You’ll Have While Running In the Rain

running-in-rain

You know you’re in the mood to run when you wake up for a workout at 6AM on a Friday and not even the rain can keep you inside.

That’s what happened to me yesterday morning. My alarm went off, I peaked at the grey sky through the crack in my curtain and was almost sure I could hear the sound of rain falling through my open window. Normally that would deter me from running outside, but something in me just really wanted to run, so I got up, got dressed and hoped that it wasn’t coming down too hard as I headed out the door.
