For seven years in D.C., I never felt like I was part of a community.
I had lots of friends, but all from different groups, and I wasn’t part of something that united me with people with common interests.
A key part to my happiness in New York is being part of multiple communities where I feel comfortable and accepted and have things in common with people.
Running. Blogging. Junior League.
Go to Agave. They have the best margaritas ever.
After staying up chatting until 2am with my friends, I had a hard time rallying this morning to meet up with a group of friends for a run this morning. We were meeting by the Apple store on 5th Ave and running to Queens for brunch. Thanks to Kristin for organizing!
I ran with Ashley the entire time and we chatted and caught up.
We ran to Queens Comfort for a fun brunch. Best part about this place? It’s BYOB!
I had the Egg McRuffin: bechamel, smoked bacon, cheddar and fontina on an English muffin with TATER TOTS.
It was such a fun low-key weekend, and I’m really grateful for such an awesome running community in New York.
What sort of communities are you involved in?
