I’ve had such a fun past week, but I’m paying for it right now being stuck with another summer cold. WTF?! I’m trying every remedy possible to beat it — just took a shot of ACV and a garlic supplement, wanna make out?
Some fun stuff that’s happened over the past week:
I took an awesome outdoor ride with Cyc Fitness on 6th Ave — one of those moments that made me feel lucky to live in this city where I can do these cool things.
I followed it up with a little run around the reservoir in Central Park because, marathon training, and it was a gorgeous night. Serious endorphin hangover the next day…
Thursday night, Meg and I went out to Coney Island to see New Kids on the Block (and saw Jen there, obviously.) Oh, and we may or may not have ended up backstage because we got “lost.” It was my first concert 27 years ago, and it was so fun to see them as an adult. Blasts from the past who appeared with them: Tiffany, Naughty by Nature.
The week before, I got to tape a workout with DOMINIQUE FREAKING DAWES for work that aired last Friday. So, yes, the past week or so has been a huge blast to my past.
Friday night, I went on the NYHRC yacht with some of my friends. 10/10, would yacht again.
Saturday, I got to watch my dear friend Emily marry the love of her life in a gorgeous wedding. (Casual NYT wedding announcement.) Emily runs events for IAC, which owns Daily Burn, and the wedding was at the IAC Building on the West Side Highway. It was gorgeous, and as usual, Emily transformed the space into something magical. I had some Rent the Runway (<– we both get $30 credit if you use this link) drama, but ended up finding a dress I loved.
Even after wedding celebrating, i woke up and headed out for my long run, trying out these Hoka One One Infinites for work. (First-time verdict: felt good out of the box, but I’m not yet sure they’re the greatest thing since sliced bread, like everyone else thinks, but I need more time with them.) Alex and I ran from the West Side over the Brooklyn Bridge (and I reminisced about living downtown and running over the BK Bridge ALL THE TIME) into Brooklyn Bridge Park before grabbing breakfast at Clark’s, a cute little diner near where we ended.
Outside of work, I’m planning on hunkering down in my apartment this week, because I’m going to Vancouver this weekend for Seawheeze, something I’ve been looking forward to for almost a year!
And, of course, I’m watching the Olympics! So proud of one our Daily Burn coaches, Chris Mosier — he was the first transgender athlete to make a U.S. national team, and now this badass athlete is in Nike’s latest spot, which debuted during Olympic coverage tonight.
Fave Olympic sport?
