SI parent

I usually don’t post twice a day (I have a hard enough time finding the time to post every other day), but I couldn’t wait to share some good news! I just found out that an article I wrote for Staten Island Parent, a parenting magazine for the almost 500,000 living on Staten Island, has […]

ING NYC Marathon Opening Day


One of the perks of participating in the 2011 Foot Locker 5 Borough Challenge (FL5BC) was (and still is!) getting VIP access to some of the events organized by NYRR.   I received an email last week from Gabi, my favorite Foot Locker representative, asking if I would consider attending the ING NYC Marathon Opening Day to […]

Mother’s Day Traditions / Review + Giveaway of Erica Sara Designs

So beautiful!!

My family celebrates EVERY holiday, birthday, and special occasion by gathering at a family member’s home (usually my mom’s!) to enjoy a home-cooked meal and family time.  Four years ago, my older sister was celebrating her first Mother’s Day (my other two sisters and I did not have children at the time).  The decision of […]

Running a City


My husband and I spent almost three weeks in Italy in July 2009.  It was a celebratory trip – I had just been honorably discharged as a Captain from the Army (after serving on Active Duty for 6 years) and my husband had just finished NYU’s Stern Business School.  We were both getting ready to […]

Running with music does NOT make me slower


I’m a huge believer that while running can be a group activity, it is extremely personal.  What works for one runner may not work for someone else.  Through trial and error, we find what works best for us. For example, I take a day off before a long run and prefer to do a shakeout run after a […]

Happy Bump Day! (18 weeks)


Happy Hump Day!!! I’ve been asked a lot recently to do an update on my pregnancy…I don’t want my whole blog to be focused on my pregnancy, so I have decided to update you on my bump on hump day every other week! =) I just started my 18th week of pregnancy!?!?  I don’t know […]

A Weekend of Sparkle


I spent Friday and Saturday at the More Fitness Half Expo in NYC  - helping a friend run her Sparkly Soul Booth!  It was SO much fun.  Not only did I get the chance to meet tons of awesome ladies running the female-only race (held yesterday) and help sell a product I love and 100% endorse, […]

To wait or Not To Wait??

Moments after my son was born & finding out we had a boy!

My husband and I are not finding out the sex of baby #2.  We waited with our first child and felt that it made the experience exciting and special. I am not going to try to convince anyone that you should wait…I think it is a personal decision and from what I’ve experienced, most females […]

Dear Saucony: Please Make Maternity Running Clothes!

30 weeks with baby #1

Exercising, specifically running, during pregnancy has become increasingly popular over the last decade – many women I know have continued their active lifestyles throughout their entire pregnancies. These days, there are maternity lines for almost anything you may want – casual clothes, formal wear, swimwear, pajamas – even pantyhose!!   I love it.  Our bodies […]

Strong women in my life

me and annie2

From an early age, my mom taught my sisters and I that no dream was out of our reach…that we could achieve anything we put our minds to.  Even to this day, if I am struggling with self-doubt, my mom will sit me down and ask me Why can’t you achieve this?  Why NOT you?”. […]

Got Chocolate Milk?

Source: Weber Shandwick

My weekend in Galveston, TX was a whirlwind.  I’ve been a spectator at many races before, but I had yet to experience it as official media.  (Tomorrow’s post will cover the IM race) As I mentioned in a post last week,  I was recently contacted by representatives from the REFUEL | “got chocolate milk?™  campaign to come to […]
