North Face Endurance Challenge AKA SUMMIT

Warning: This post is packed to the brim with November Project fitness pictures from the recent North Face Endurance Race in Park City.  If you just so happen to be friends with people who attended, I’m sure you are sick and tired of seeing pictures and throwbacks and flashbacks pop up on your feed.  Well, if you are over it, I suggest you click out now.  If not and you are oh so interested in the hoopla that went on, read on my friends, read on.


About 10 of us NYC gals flew together out on Thursday night, narrowly missing the Papal chaos, and two girls just nearly missing the plane (story for another time), and then 5 of us crashing at a friends house in Salt Lake City.  Early Friday morning, we reconvened with about 400 other November Project tribe members for a morning workout on the stairs of the city capitol.  No really, there were TONS of people all.weekend.long.  For pure evidence, check out NP Canada’s album here.


^^ This is Lily.  She is one of my old/new friends from Los Angeles.  She also blogs at “Lily Runs the World“.  Boom.

IMG_2572Sam and I. Sam and me.  I am confused on the grammar of that sentence and have been battling my mother (the English teacher) about it.  Anyways, Sam is my accountabilibuddy and we are two cool kids…as you can see.

The best part about these events is that many of us have “met” through Instagram, Facebook, or some other strange way that our generation meets.  Point of the story is many of us know one another through social media but haven’t met or haven’t seen one another in a long time.  Summit = glorified summer camp.  For three days.  It’s amazing.


^^ Utah’s state symbol, the beehive.  Main reason being Brigham Young & the Latter-day Saints arrived in Salt Lake Valley, named it Deserret, which according to the Book of Mormon means “honeybee”.   You can now see this symbol across Utah on signs and pretty much everywhere.


^^ THESE WERE $1 EACH. I REPEAT ONLY ONE DOLLAR!  I swear, you would have thought we had won the jackpot.  When I asked how much a homemade cinnamon roll cost, my jaw dropped and I proceeded to tell every single soul in the store.  I may have walked outside with cinnamon roll in hand to spread the good news.  I mean, this would have easily been $5 in New York.  We all had decided to eat at this one store, which only happened to have one person working.  I’m sure he was quite overwhelmed and while we ultimately all came waltzing into this poor store, purchased a treat, and walked out, it was worth it.

After breakfast, it was back to SLC where we were staying, a quick shower, and then party bus to Park City!  Just kidding.  We were oh so chill and our friend Taylor drove us through the interstate and I laughed as my entire car was in awe of the mountains.  Don’t get me wrong, it was gorgeous, but I had also been to Utah (and SLC/Park City) a fair number of times AND have practically grown up in the mountains, so it’s nothing new. Some of my friends had never been in altitude before!  I couldn’t give them too much of a hard time because I must say things about the east coast that they think are no big deal.  Point of the story is, listening to them oo and aw all weekend did remind me to stop and “smell the roses”.


^^ This is the Blue Haus crew.  An AirBNB selection (best option ever) right off the main street and rolling deep with NP_NYC girls and Jonathan from NP_Boston (aka the Mother Tribe).  Absolutely no fun was had during this trip.  No pillow fights, no girl talk, no hot tub.  ;) We gave him a hard time.


Friday was spent exploring the town, picking up race bibs, checking out the course (or avoiding looking at the mountain we were going to be climbing the next day…I prefer to go in and just “wing it” and hope for the best – a Kaitlin classic mentality, something that didn’t really help me on my SATs…)


^^ I don’t normally partake in the pre-race alcoholic festivities, but this sounded too good to pass up. The Rose of Cimarron (American Prairie Double Rye w/ strawberry rhubarb & rosemary preserve, lemon juice, gingerade kombucha)


We opted to stay in for dinner and prep a little salmon + sweet potato + grilled veggie medley.  Actually, the famous Burke from Burkes Bites was residing with us (yay Team Manhattan Mountain Goats!) and pretty much had this meal whipped up in no time at all.  Not to mention the price per person was just around $12 (waaaaaay less than what we would have found in town)


Saturday we were up bright and early (7:15? better than NP alarm clocks, which can be 4:50am or 5:30am), had breakfast on the porch, and maybe a little too much Keurig coffee.  May not have been the best idea since I hadn’t drank coffee for two weeks.  Between the caffeine and my nerves for running (always get nervous no matter what), my heart was literally pounding


TAGGING TIME!  Because when you join November Project, you will learn that it’s completely normal to take all your workout clothes (and even purchase brand new items) to then spray paint them with various stencils.  Technically we should only have the November Project tag and our respective tribes, but there was the Summit tag and we Mountain Goats need our own representation.

IMG_2619^^ Love love love this.  We here are the Manhattan Mountain Goats, reporting for duty.  As Burke put it, what happens when you put a Californian, a Lawyer, a Fashion Designer, and a Consultant together?  One epic team.


(LEFT)  Here’s Laura, heading off at 9am for her FIRST marathon.  That girl is crazy.  She decided to make a marathon – a trail marathon in altitude – her first marathon.  She killed it.  So proud. (RIGHT)  Around 10am, we had the first legs of the marathon relay head out.  Nice NYC representation above by Coach John and the awesome Matt Powers.

IMG_2604Some of the leaders were handing out these nifty passes to people they didn’t know.  It was like a little tribal stick where you had to then go find someone YOU didn’t know and hand the pass off.  One guy made fun of me for holding onto it for too long, but really I had forgotten it was there.  Also, I sometimes get nervous going up to random people. Sometimes.  Strange, I know.


We took pictures, we modeled, we cheered each other on.

I waited around from 8:30 until 1:30ish when I ran the 4th and final leg of our relay.  Times ranged around an hour (1:04:52 ~ 1:09:12 ~ 1:18:03 ~ 58:49) as the course went 3 miles uphill and 3 miles downhill.  Not going to lie, I was so nervous all day.

summit race photo

I’m not sure why since racing is all done for fun and there’s never any pressure on the line (except the pressure I put on myself of course).


Aren’t we attractive?  This was taken seconds after I finished and practically collapsed into Sam.  The rest of my team had been chilling (in the Sierra Nevada beer garden?) and I was struggling to stay standing.  I had completely underestimated the hills and the altitude and was banking on my sea level Central Park training to get me through.

Once I stretched out a bit, it was off to post-race festivities, which included chilling in the Sierra Nevada beer tent (yay for shade), cheering on other runners, stretching, showering, dinner, and celebrating at the No Fun bar with all of NP.  We may have stuffed a good 100+ people in the 40 person capacity patio.  What happens in Park City, stays in Park City (on social media like this little blog).

PSA: Drinking in the altitude is different than drinking at sea level.  Just saying.


^^ Blue Haus crew making some joke that will stay in the orb of Instagram and not be repeated on the blog. 


Sunday morning spent with coffee on the porch, snacking on an energy bar, getting ready to do a little mountain shake out.  I debated whether or not to run again, but I honestly couldn’t pass up spending some more time outdoors sans city grime.  The crew above logged in about 5 or so miles, climbing and descending hills, wishing we had booked a few more days in Utah.


As they jogged back to the NP_San Fran house for breakfast (homemade waffles because one dude packed his waffle iron…BRILLIANT), I got cleaned up, helped tidy the AirBnB and set off to find breakfast.

IMG_2637 It sure wasn’t a homemade waffle, but french toast croque monsieur, was quite divine.  From there, it was time to finish cleaning the AirBnb, pack our bags, say goodbye to old and new friends (jealous of those who continued exploring the great Utah outdoors), and Uber our way to In N Out – $90 ride later and worth it.

IMG_2651^^ A trip to the west coast apparently isn’t complete without a trip to In ‘N Out.  Can you believe that two people in my car had never tasted In ‘N Out?  Mind blown.  I actually wasn’t entirely in the mood to eat but I have FOMO (fear of missing out) and thus, purchasing a burger, fries, shake, and lemonade was the next logical move.  But hey, points for the protein wrap, right?

From there, we took an uber to the SLC airport, boarded a plane to Chicago, transferred and landed in Newark, caught a ride with Sam’s mom (mega thanks for picking us up at midnight) and crashed into bed.  The next few days were not nearly as fun (think waking up and feeling hungover but actually having the flu…yeah no fun) but the memories remain, even if it’s all on social media.


^^ cred to Kati from November Project Canada

“Life begets life. Energy creates energy. It is by spending oneself that one becomes rich.” – Sarah Bernhardt

Current Life Questions from A to Z

A survey that has been floating around the blogosphere must be fun, right?  Well, you’re in for a treat because it’s on the blog today.  Thanks to Sarah and Hayley for the inspiration.


A — Age: 24 (although sometimes I feel oodles older.  Also, turns out I’m one of the young’uns at NP – I didn’t realize it until we shared our ages and looks like not everyone is in their mid-20’s as I had previously thought)

B – Biggest Fear: Not being able to move as well as feeling like a failure. I don’t like disappointing people, especially myself.  Whether it’s a project, a commitment, or just life in general, I hate feeling as though I’m about to quit on someone or something.

C – Current Time: 2:55 (last edit since I’ve been writing this over a few days weeks)

D – Drink You Had Last: Currently chugging ice water with lemon

E – Easiest Person To Talk To: Mom.  She offers advice that usually is right (ok most of the time) and also listens to me when all I need to do is vent.


F – Favorite Song: Angel in Blue Jeans (Train)

G – Grossest Memory: I was stopped off with friends at a Carl’s Jr. en-route to Mammoth Mountain and a bird pooped on my head.  Not cool. (There are others but I’d rather not re-live them. Thanks)

H – Hometown: Pasadena, California area!

I – In Love With: The friends I’ve made in the last few years and the support we give one another whether we realize it or not.  That and the opportunities open to our generation.

J – Jealous Of: People who know exactly what they want to do with their lives – jobs, travel, etc.  I have a hefty number of ideas but that’s all I got. 

K – Kindest Person You Know: This one is tough because I’m not sure I could name the absolute kindest person but know oodles of people with open hearts and others who I spot with random acts of kindness.  Let’s share that love around and remember we all are here to coexist. 

L – Longest Relationship: With Ben & Jerry’s?  We go way back.  Just kidding. 

M – Middle Name: Jean.  I’m named after my great-grandmother and from the stories that I have heard, I take after her in many ways.  I think if she were alive today or if we had grown up together, we might have been good pals. 

N – Number of Siblings: 1 sister.  We are best buds.  That’s of course once we get past the fact that I was quite rude to her for 18 years and now she is stuck with my endless random ramblings.  I appreciate you Megnan :)


O – One Wish: World peace.  Or for everyone to find something they love and be content with life.  None of this should have, would have, could have, regret and jealousy business.  You do you and carpe diem people. 

P – Person You Spoke To On The Phone Last: Most likely mom.  We talk all the time.  My dad is sometimes hurt by this but he has to know (as I tell him all the time) I usually am talking about nonsensical things with my mom.  Like what I had for lunch.  Or that I actually wore my hair down ALL DAY.  Yeah that rarely happens, but still. 

Q – Question You’re Always Asked: Is that your natural hair color?  Yep, sometimes a little help from SunIn, but all natural :)

R – Reason To Smile:  Weekend is near.  It’s fall.  All Or this video about llamas.

S – Song You Last Sang: Lean On (Major Lazer & DJ Snake) Not sure how I got the chorus stuck in my head but it’s great.

T – Time You Woke Up: 4:58 (when this was written) and probably 6 (when this is posted)

U – Underwear Color: Black.  

V – Vacation Destination: Hawaii.  Obsessed.  Although currently I have been in the mood to travel somewhere new all the time.  Current list for the east coast includes: Nashville, Raleigh, Charleston, Maine, Florida, and Georgia.

W – Worst Habit: Ooph, that’s tough.  I do have a terrible habit of cutting people off when they are talking.  I like to finish their sentences.  Oops.

X – X-Rays You’ve Had: Leg – back when I had some runners’ knee issues.

Y – Your Favorite Food: Oooo man.  Sweet potato.  Or ice cream.  Or kale.  Definitely kale.  Cheeseburgers too.  I don’t think I could ever go vegan.  I’m pretty much an open book.

Z — Zodiac Sign: Taurus.  It’s scary how accurate it can be.

Pick one (or a few) and share your answers!  Do share some random fun :)

Life of Late ~ 9.25.15

Seriously, how are we already at the end of September? Good gracious time is just FLYING by.  Things at work have been picking up – between clients wanting to advertise during the 4th quarter and some of my colleagues being out of the office, I’ve started to cover more and more.  Fine by me since I’m more productive when I have more on my plate.  Anyone else feel that way?  Seems to be a Type A thing.

Probably the best part of today is that I am NOT in New York City and do NOT have to deal with all the chaos that has ensued from the UN Grand Council meeting, President Obama being in town, and oh the Pope being in the United States for the first time.  Ever.  I’m out in gorgeous Utah for the weekend and am PUMPED for being outdoors all.darn.weekend.  Yes, lots of all-caps going on, because it’s just that exciting.

We are out west for one of the North Face Endurance Challenge Races in Park City, Utah and are participating among hundreds of other folks, to run up a mountain in epic (at least compared to NYC) altitude.   Good times.  Oh, and it’s our November Project Summit, which means tons of people are flying in from all 23 tribes! Partay!!!


These are just some of the folks I’ll be hanging around with this weekend.  Aren’t we attractive?  Let’s decide to take our “picture day portraits” on the most humid day ever.  But really, I don’t think this summer was too terrible in terms of humidity but the last few weeks of August were out of control.  Our New York tribe was going for concrete business jungle or something like that.  Basically a play on the fact that most of our city is stereotyped to be fashionistas or Wall Street finance bros.  Either way, my pals Emma and Alex nailed it (top row – lawyer and fashion designer) and Sam and I just are awesome. ;)

IMG_2362 ^^ Anyone know what this means?  I’ve raced 9 races for New York Road Runners this year and volunteered one (well two actually) and am able to receive automatic entrance to next year’s TCS NYC Marathon.  As in my first marathon ever.  Wow.  I’ll be taking a bit of a break after my next half in Staten Island (yes, it will be a glorious destination race, just like Sweden or Huntington Beach or Berlin) and rest mentally and physically.

I actually have a bit of an issue mentally and physically resting, so that should be interesting.  When I told my friend that I couldn’t actually sleep and felt that I had to work out instead (usually leading to me overextending myself and getting sick…) she joked that she had never heard anyone say that it was tougher to stay in bed than work out.  It’s sort of tough to explain to some people and I know we are all different.  But, here’s my verbal commitment here to at least try.


^^ Another New York bucket list item CHECK!  This time it was out to Brooklyn for some shuffleboard fun at The Royal Palms Shuffleboard and Ample Hills Creamery.  I’ll throw together a little recap in case you want to add it to your bucket list ;)

IMG_2483^^ We do a mean straight face.  For some reason that’s a trend in November Project.  I guess you could start using the same hashtag that Equinox uses for its campaigns >> #novemberprojectmademedoit.  Bit long but you get the idea.


^^ Did you know it’s fall?  Have you seen every single girl around you fall prey to the Starbucks PSL or Pumpkin Spice Latte?  Apparently they got so much flack after people exposed the original PSL to not contain any pumpkin whatsoever – just chemicals (good for the mind, body, and soul, right?) – so they changed the recipe.  I think it’s absolutely delicious and did cave on Wednesday aka the first official day of fall.


I am already planning all the festive fall things I would like to make – apple butter, pumpkin butter, pumpkin ice cream, pumpkin vegetable lasagna, pumpkin granola, apple cider martinis/sangria, pumpkin gnocchi or ravioli or pumpkin mac and cheese, stew, soup + grilled cheese, on and on and on.  Then there are the fall outfits like boots and scarfs and jeans.  I will need to switch over my entire closet and of course buy a new pair of jeans because running = muscles = 3 ripped pairs of jeans.  Basically I will be broke from all the ingredients I have purchased and probably sick of pumpkin by October 31st. #basicbitch (sorry mom) and no shame about it.

How do you like to celebrate fall?  Do you fall prey to the pumpkin trend too?

Sweet Southern Eats ~ Charleston Edition

A trip to the south – or anywhere for that matter – is not complete without a list of eats.  We were only in Charleston for a short time, just under three days, and I think we did a fine job of making our way around town.

Starting with breakfast/brunch, we decided to hit up Butcher & Bee, a top recommendation and one which is located off one of the main roads and in the back of a parking lot.  Sure, sounds normal to those folks in L.A. or in the suburbs, but strange for someone who has been absorbed in the New York lifestyle for some time.

IMG_7837 IMG_7825 Options, options, options.  Most of them were along the lunch and dinner realm, but we made it work with some huevos rancheros and epic french toast.

IMG_7831  ^^ Like I said on Monday, when you find yourself in the south, ask for everything on top of a biscuit.  Duh.


 A food blogger in her natural habitat.  ;)  She is queen of the San Francisco eats and has lots of fun explorations if find yourself in sunny (cloudy?) San Fran.

IMG_7833 Of course Gaia’s french toast was the real winner on presentation.  A gooey selection of Challah bread dipped in something sweet, toasted to perfection, and topped with berries and granola. Mmmmm, sugar coma come save me.

IMG_7835Now if you are looking for something a little more casual or maybe caffeinated, I recommend stopping into The Daily (by Butcher & Bee).  We ended up here post breakfast for just that – coffee and juice, and I would certainly have gone back there the next two days if it wasn’t in the opposite direction of our adventures. Oh and the whole “must try new things” idea.


IMG_7822Lovely pre-packaged items ready to devour.  Like I said, if I lived here full time and had the ability to spend $$$, I would be here all day every day.


Yes kind sir I am taking a picture of my beverages (split with Laura).  No judgement.  We’ve got Green Lemonade on the left (kale, spinach, cucumber, green apple, lemon, ginger – BEST JUICE EVER) and Iced Almond Milk Latte on the right (BEST ALMOND MILK LATTE EVER).  Just throwing that out there.


On the first day, we ended up eating breakfast at such a late hour, that there really was no need to stop again for lunch and instead, we spent the day walking and then snacking on various coffee drinks and glorious King Street Cookies.  They even had a milk bar for you to fill up and pair alongside your one, two, or more sweet treats.  I went for more of the chocolate selection while Lindsay had strawberry and lemon and Laura stuck to a snicker-doodle and molasses.


King Street Cookies

We may not have eaten lunch on day one, but we sure found ourselves in line for BBQ on day two.  The original plan had been to wander through a plantation and then end up at Sullivan’s Island or Isle of the Palms for some much needed beach time.  Well, Mother Nature had different ideas and with a never-ending rainstorm in our midst, we settled in for a nice drink and southern spread.

IMG_2214IMG_7927 Lindsay found the most adorable old-fashioned bar where they make affordable classic cocktails and play black and white movies on the wall.  I decided to go outside my comfort zone and order something with gin and pineapple.  The thinking was “maybe the pineapple will help my legs recover from all that walking, right?”  Good thinking.

Next up dinner, but that went un-pictured by yours truly.  I swear it was delicious, I just decided to live in the moment.  For some delicious looking pictures, check out Laura’s post here.


Husk is yet another wonderful dining option – one that requires a reservation well in advance.  We didn’t think that one through either and couldn’t really show up and ask for a table for 5.  But maybe you can check it out for us!

76 Queen St, Charleston, SC 29401

IMG_7933 IMG_7935

Next step.  Find a suitable dessert option to end the night.

We all know the book, If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, but I think there needs to be a book, If You Give Kaitlin a Scoop of Ice Cream (she will love you forever).  But then again, maybe we shouldn’t.  In the end I will say hands down, ice cream is the best creation and certainly the best dessert.  I also think now that Jeni’s has their stuff together, they are churning out some fine flavors.

IMG_2257 Because ending the day, weekend, trip, and summer with another scoop of ice cream is the right decision. (same place, different night)  Really, the diet starts tomorrow.


Hominy Grill ~ Charleston Brunch #2

This little thing we like to call brunch is way more popular across the country than I actually realized.  Maybe it’s due to the fact that I never truly “brunched” growing up.  We were always so busy going from soccer tournaments to softball games to USC tailgates and football games and the list could go on and on.  Basically, going to brunch has been a whole new experience for me.  So obviously we made it happen not once, but twice.

IMG_7942Just down the road from where we were staying is the ultimate brunch (and dinner) affair – Hominy Grill.  It’s the place to go for biscuits or shrimp and grits or even a cup of jo’ and some eggs.  But let’s be honest, eggs are no fun when you only get to eat here once in your life.

207 Rutledge Ave. Charleston, SC 29403

IMG_7948IMG_7950Like many other popular brunch spots, you will arrive, only to find a wait.  Simply put your name in and consider ordering a beverage (or two) and relax.

IMG_7953 IMG_7955 Just a few appetizers for the table ~ 1) Fried Green Tomatoes (a MUST in Charleston apparently)  2) Plain ‘ol Biscuit 3) Slices Housemade Banana Or Pumpkin Ginger Bread two slices


 Charleston Nasty Biscuit with fried chicken breast, cheddar cheese & sausage gravy

IMG_7959 Daily special of Buckwheat Pancakes w/ Peach Yogurt Butter


Shrimp & Grits! with sautéed shrimp w/ scallions, mushrooms & bacon over cheese grits


Double thumbs up my friends.  We were quite impressed by the food and the folks helping us out.  I mean, our server practically almost pulled up a chair to swap stories with us, explain the menu, and make sure we were doing alright.  All the food recommendations were spot on – make sure to order the fried green tomatoes and shrimp and grits – and we left very well fed.

Life of Late ~ 9.18.15

I do apologize for the bombardment of photos this week.  There is so much to share and so much to catch up on so let’s keep this nice and short.  Did you know that this week marks 16 weeks until 2016?  That sure puts things in perspective.

Also, this is the LAST official weekend of summer.  I’m hoping the weather holds out for us as I would LOVE to take one more trip to the beach tomorrow.  I can already feel a slight chill in the air, a slight breeze that truly smells like fall, and of course the Pumpkin Spice Latte is in full force.  I’m trying – oh so trying – to hold out until October 1st.  It just doesn’t seem right otherwise.  For now, I blog to eat.  Or is it run to eat?  Let’s link up and list out random fun.

IMG_2049 Throwback to my last summer Friday day of eats.  Got to love the “healthy” sweet frozen treat from Chloe’s Soft Serve Fruit – frozen fruit with water and a dash of cane sugar.

IMG_2054 ^^ Next up or later in the afternoon, I stopped by Shake Shack for a burger and a concrete.  I had just finished yoga when my roommate texted me that she was meeting a coworker at Shake Shack.  I had only planned to stop by and say hi but of course the allure of a juicy burger and dining al fresco pulled me in.  Some say it’s a great burger and others compare it to McDonald’s.  I’d say for a “fast-food” joint, it’s not half-bad and I especially liked the chopped pepper and bacon on top.

Shutters upon shutters from Charleston, SC.  Just a little blue and I don’t mind if I do.

IMG_7910Take me back to where the street views look like this. Window upon windows and flowers upon flowers.

Well + Good ~ “9 Signs to Show You Are Exhausted” ~ Yes. Yes. Yes.  I also have been cutting out coffee (over a week without!) but maybe a little more sleep would do the body and soul good.

Buzzfeed ~ “We Know How Much of a 90’s Kid You Actually Are” – But really.  Take this quiz and you will thank me.  SO MUCH FROM THE 09’s that I forgot about.  So many good memories.

FullSizeRenderThat time I ran around Manhattan in order to fulfill my long run quota for the day and to end up at Clinton St. Baking Co.  A quick tip is that it’s a cash only joint, so make sure to come prepared.

I’m 99% sure you will arrive to a queue, between 30 minutes to over an hour, but well worth the wait.   This here is the famous blueberry pancakes with warm maple butter.  I saw the man next to us order the same thing and then ask for regular syrup.  No sir, just no.
