I was born, raised, and attended college in Virginia, lived in Philadelphia for 2 years for AmeriCorps, then moved to New York City for grad school. I started this blog in 2010 as a repository for restaurant and tourist spot recommendations, but that’s what Yelp and TripAdvisor are for.
In late 2014, I (a long-retired High School track & field hurdler and sprinter) joined a gym and entered into the lottery for the NYC Half Marathon. Long story short, I ran NYRR’s 9+1 program in 2015 for guaranteed entry into the 2016 TCS NYC Marathon. I joined ClassPass in September 2015.
I’m more than a little into talking about training for races, fitness apparel, and “fueling”. And by fueling, I mean post-races donuts and iced coffee as much as Gu Gel and Honey Stinger chews. I love baking and am currently working to perfect some Momofuku Milk Bar cookie recipes.
