Final February Favorites ~ 2.27.15

Guess what? It’s almost March, which means it’s almost daylight savings, which means it’s almost spring, which almost means it’s almost SUMMER!

Honestly I’m more of a spring kind of gal but living life in short shorts, bathing suits, and basking in the endless sunshine don’t sound too bad either.  This whole business of 20F needs to end.  As a matter of fact, I had a friend in LA who sent a snap chat complaining about how cold she was.  It was 60F.  No sympathy.

So I swear I’m cultivating some great posts…down the road.  For now, enjoy the hodge-podge of thoughts and links that I have stumbled upon lately.

11018889_10101782570167315_3124976218371809371_n~ Wednesday’s bridge workout with one of my favorites.  This girl has such energy and her spontaneous dancing? on point.  She may have sang an amazing round of happy birthday this morning and the cashier brought a piece of cake to the table just because. ~

1509722_10153023567858260_8053196225700844840_n  ~ NP is famous (if you already didn’t know) ~  Today’s workout was strategically located near Rock Center, but more importantly in front of a few news studios  where we just happened to make it on camera.  Made it on this morning’s Squak Box where they were discussing the current tech bubble (around 1:31, we are in the far right corner)

~ Llamas on the Loose ~  Please tell me you saw this as the top news yesterday.  I was dying.  If I haven’t made you watch Llamas With Hats 2, watch now.  Cracks me up every time.  No judgement and definitely not my mom’s favorite video.  What can I say?  Sometimes I refuse to act my age.

~ 13 Breakfast Choices and What they Say About You ~ My sister is totally #1.  that is, she is way mature beyond her classmates and totally has her life together.  Myself?  Maybe I’ll bounce between Greek yogurt and juice.  Too bad they don’t have a bullet for spoonfuls of peanut butter straight out of the jar. #classy

Gary Vaynerchuk’s Monday Morning video (**This has some adult language so either wear headphones, don’t watch, or just laugh along 🙂  You have been warned)

~ Things that Only Runners Understand ~  Weekends/holidays/birthdays filled with running, foam rolling, or dropping money to run and get sweaty?  Truth.  I had the opportunity to meet the sweet Janae back at Blend 2014 and she really is the nicest person you will ever encounter.  Too bad I didn’t know her when we both lived in Santa Clara/San Jose area!

~ The North Face Endurance Challenge Park City, UT (Sept 26-27) ~ I reeeeaaaaalllly want to do this race.  So there’s actually one in May that’s right here in New York (or rather slightly north of the city).  I wasn’t able to get a team together or sign up for the half (see below), so I’m hoping I can make this fall race and world takeover work.

While I won’t be on the November Project travel station or race station this May, I will be representing NYC in Philly’s Broad Street 10 Miler.  My family friend has run this race a couple of times and so when the opportunity to enter the lottery came around, it was a no-brainer.*  Well, turns out I do have some luck on my side and so I’ll be cruising through Philly on May 3.  Perfect early-birthday present for myself.   (*This is usually how my sign-ups work.  Impulsive with my credit-card memorized – See Dad, I use my cash flow in a responsible manner…working out and staying healthy)

As for this weekend, I’ve got some plans to run, juice (green juice folks, just green juice), eat, sleep, run, brunch, and maybe some other normal people activities thrown in there.

Have a Fabulous Friday and see you on the other side (in March)

  1. So much NP lovin in this post! I really really reallyyyyyyy want to do the summit too. But I just don’t know if I’ll be able to swing it (aka highly doubtful). Stupid me and signing up for races before I know about all the fun things going on. I should just make a trip out there anyways and not run…
