I haven’t done one of these in a really long time, and this seemed like a good time to resurrect this long-lost genre of posts. I’m noticing that most of the things I’ve listed have been really key components to maintaining my sanity through what has been a long winter.
Just a quick reminder that these posts aren’t sponsored in any way. The opinions are mine and completely unsolicited.
If you will recall I blogged this a little while ago when I recommitted to doing the NYRR 9+1 for guaranteed entry to the 2015 NYC Marathon.
I have updated with my volunteer race, one race change/addition, and which races I’m actually registered for and will try to update as I complete them.

NYRR Gridiron 4 Miler [Registered] - 2/2/14- Complete!
Washington Heights Salsa, Blues, and Shamrocks 5K [Registered] - 3/2/14- Complete!

Breaking a little radio silence to request a favor…
Rob and I will be spending a long weekend in DC for our spring break (followed by a few days here at home to recover, catch up on sleep, and get a jump on the end of our respective semesters - ummm and the NCLEX?!?!?).
We’ve both been to DC before and we have done the monuments and a handful of the museums, but I was hoping that someone could suggest something fun and otherwise quintessentially-DC for us to do. I’m already hoping to log a run as I will be continuing my training for the Brooklyn Half (which I started on Monday).
We’re open to a variety of things and will likely have food and drink pretty well covered, but we’re looking to soak up a little bit of DC with our St. Patrick’s Day beers.
Recommendations? Suggestions? Favorite, not-to-be-missed running routes?
I love living in NYC, though it has (and has always had) an expiration date for me.
I won’t be here forever and I’m a-ok with that. While I love being here now, I’m looking forward to living somewhere where life is a little it easier.
Both of us just have to finish school. Then it’s off to the great blue yonder!
No no. I’ll be here until I have finished school (and Rob has too). Meaning we will be here for at least another 3 years.
The sad story is: my favorite brunch establishment is closing. I’ve spent so many happy times with all of my favorite visitors-to-NYC there.
Cheers to Meade’s and their amazing people!
And cheers to the many memories they helped me make. They will be so missed.
