I had my first work event tonight since starting my new job, and I survived.
Remember how I wrote about DailyBurn last month? Tonight they held their launch party for Intelliburn at the lovely IAC building, where my lovely friend Emily works, planning their events. Which means she planned this event. Being on a work conference call with one of your friends on the other end? Very weird.
This space looks gorgeous from the inside, but it’s even prettier from the outside.
From the 9th floor, where we were, you could see the Hudson and views of my very scenic and gorgeous home state.
KALE CHIPS AT THE BAR! I swear I had little to do with this.
(See the sweet view? That’s the Empire State Building, behind the tree behind my head.)
It was a press event, so there were lots of bloggers and other media people. Like Melissa.
And my friend Abby, generally referred to on this blog as Former Coworker Abby.
The event was actually pretty fun for me to work, since I got to chat with a bunch of reporters and bloggers, most of whom I already knew.
I also managed to make it to a 6:30 abs class this morning, so I am exhausted. (The class? SO HARD. Last night, I was all “30 minute ab class? I really should take a 45-minute class” …but yeah. Jaz is no joke. Ever. The class included jumping squats, planks, approximately forty million different kinds of crunches, and mountain climbers on glide disks, and there is no way in hell I could have pushed through another 15 minutes of it.)
So now I’m off to sleep with visions of rest days dancing in my head. Two hard running workouts and two hard strength workouts later, I can’t remember the last time I wanted a rest day so badly.
