Fundraising on the Run

What did you do tonight? I partied in a running store.

Ali held a fundraiser at JackRabbit (she’s running the Hamptons Marathon to raise money for the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America), and I knew most of my favorite New York runners and bloggers would be there.


The event was held in the back of JackRabbit, and was mostly girls. (If I have any male readers? You missed out.) It was so much fun seeing everyone and meeting some new people, including the awesome (and crazy) Laura, who ran 50 marathons in two years.


There was also one awesome girl named Ali. And yes, I got that special edition I <3 Sweat shirt. I stayed in town just so I could get it.


I guess there was food, but more importantly, there was wine.


And trivia. (I didn’t win.)


Some hot Ali-on-Ali action.


She had all sorts of great raffles, including passes to Flywheel and Pure. I stacked my tickets hard for Flywheel, but didn’t win.


And yeah. Coach Cane was there. He’s hilarious. I see why Ali likes him so much. Speaking of people Ali likes, her handsome friend was there, too. He really is pretty handsome (and funny and treats her really well.) She’s currently working on getting him cloned for me by my high school reunion in November.


I was hungry when I got home, and contemplated takeout, but I found these Chinese leftovers in my fridge from the other night and microwaved a chicken sausage to put over them.

I try not to let myself order food after 10pm–I’m too tired and I feel like it’s less worth it then. What’s your cut-off? And what’s your favorite (or weirdest, I know I’ve made some weird stuff when I come home late) fast meal to make when you come home late and hungry?

    So great meeting you too!!! Celia and I went to 16 Handles afterward though… oops 🙂

    I just posted the other day about how my latest thing is promising myself that when I get home, I can cook anything I want (because how I cook it will always be healthier than picking it up at a street vendor or something, even if it’s pizza). But then I get home, and I usually just go to bed, and I wake up so glad I didn’t indulge. Unless I skipped dinner, I try not to eat within an hour of going to bed, since it’s not like you’ll be thinking about food for hours if you’re sleeping. (And I have never dreamed about food)

    Cloning is in effect, don’t worry. Hehe.

    This is a wonderful post. I have a big silly grin on my face reading it. Thank you so, so much for all of your wonderful support. It means so much to me and I’m so incredibly grateful to have people like you by my side right now. Thank you for coming last night and for being a lovely friend.

      @Ali: Of course, darling! Thank *you* for helping me stay sane throughout this job search! Hugs. (And wine. Soon.)

    the other night we flew to our lake cabin up north just to check on things & water the new landscaping. before we left i got together all the components for b.l.t’s (i make mine w/ avocado too). i packaged everything separately & made them in the plane on the way home & we had a little picnic 18,000 feet in the air (dont worry we have auto pilot). that way we didnt have to worry about figuring out something to eat once we got home!

    So bummed I missed out last night! Looks like a great time.
    I’ve been working super late nights this week so I’ve been coming up with weird 11PM dinners – last night’s was my favorite and a standby – scrambled eggs, black beans, whole wheat tortilla, lots of chipotle tabasco. A little boring but I’m not too creative after a long day!

    I have to admit I’m a bit jealous of all you NYC runners! It sounds like you had such a great time at the event! One of these days I’ll come into the city and will be able to meet you all. 🙂
