Fashion week is always an interesting time in New York. And for me in particular, what I was doing this week versus what I was doing four years ago? Completely different.

I remember having one job during Fashion’s Night Out 2010 where I was instructed to stand on a glass box, in six inch heels, for four hours in a window…

Want to hear my interview?

Hey people of the world!
IMG_5989-0.JPG
A reminder coming from me to you! We are one week away from the launch of Get Fit!

If you don’t know what I’m talking about, you should read my post from last Wednesday!

My interview is all about body image and the messed up realities of the modeling world. Luckily I was able to come out much stronger a person than going in and marathon running was a huge step in the…

Energizer Bunny Fuel

Last Friday, I possibly had one of my best long runs..ever.

And it definitely wasn’t because I ate well before. I actually didn’t even eat lunch – I was working straight from 8am til 7pm. During this time all I had had was a bagel with butter and two bananas.

I had missed my workout with josh at 630pm because I couldn’t leave. And so when I finally got off work, I was frustrated and almost past…

Special Announcement…I’m a Get Fit Virtual Summit Speaker!

Hi lovely people!

Earlier in July I was asked to be a speaker for a fitness series. At first, I was a little shocked and then I was really excited and intrigued! Needless to say, I accepted and was given some more information.

First Day of Training and Goal Setting!

IMG_5888.PNGToday is a special day! Not only is it Monday, it is also the first day of my Philadelphia Marathon training!

This training is 14 weeks long and will be tougher, more voluminous and longer than my training plan last fall. I’ll be teaming up with Josh – Speedy Sasquatch – again to try and beat my time from Marine Corps Marathon…

The facts….

Yoga Styles Gone Running! Onzie Apparel

Yoga Styles Gone Running! Onzie Apparel

IMG_5440.JPGThe first time I saw the solar system printed crops I knew they had to be mine! They belong to a company called Onzie who specializes in yoga clothing so I was tempted to figure out whether these amazing yoga pieces could be translated to running apparel as well. They were sweet enough to let me test out two products: the spin crop and the elastic bra.

First off the spin crop.

Club Champs 5 Miler Recap

I haven’t done one of these in a while: Race recap! This past weekend I participated in the New York Road Runners Club Team Champs 5 Miler in Central Park for Gotham City Runners. It was such a cool race because it was split up by gender, so the women ran first and then there was a separate men’s race.

It really brought me back to high school cross country. Everyone was sporting their team’s…

Easy (& Affordable) Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner!

I’ve been experimenting – more so than usual – with food recently. I’ve found two recipes that I’m definitely going to continue making, one breakfast and one that can be used for lunch or dinner.

Overnight Oats

I know, I know, I am late to the game. But the other week I was over at Jen’s apartment and she was making them so I took careful note and altered mine just a little bit!

1/3 cup regular…

Pre-Season Training and Scary Goals!

Hope everyone is having a wonderful Monday! My attitude towards Mondays has gone 180 degrees because at work, they provide us with bagels on Monday morning. This is probably one of the best perks you could give a runner-employee. Pass the carbs, please.

As we are nearing the middle of summer, I have definitely become more conscious with the amount of running I am doing/was doing..and by was…

Tips for a Successful Beach Run

20140715-110453-39893226.jpg
I am pretty lucky that my roommate is from the beach originally so whenever we go back to her house to visit there are major perks involved: salt water taffy, New Jersey peaches, homemade ice cream and beach running. Growing up my family never went to the beach (because we would go back home to Finland during the summers) so beach running is a fairly new endeavor for me.

This past weekend, I had…
