Iâ€™ve had a lot on my mind as of late, so Iâ€™ve had a wicked wicked case of insomnia AND am not doing a morning workout because Iâ€™m running the Brooklyn Half tomorrow, so I, blissfully, have some weird free time before work to check in with yâ€™all.
Last night, my New Balance buds invited me to a pre-race party at the 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge, a gorgeous, sleek hotel in Dumbo.
Then it was time to pick up my bib. AND YES, I talked one of my BFFs into her first half. SO PROUD.Â
I like running, have I mentioned that? Itâ€™s truly what keeps me at least moderately sane in the face of quite a bit of adversity. Though Iâ€™d be lying if I said I werenâ€™t at least a little nervous about tomorrow after DNF-ing last year. But Iâ€™m reminding myself that even if I havenâ€™t had a perfect training cycle, Iâ€™ve still trained, and my sinuses arenâ€™t acting all weird like they were this time last year.
So, since itâ€™s Friday, letâ€™s talk about some things Iâ€™m loving/have my eye on, since apparently thatâ€™s what people do on the internets on Friday.
Iâ€™m reading two very different books at the moment: Extreme You, an inspirational book by Sarah Robb Oâ€™Hagan, the CEO of Flywheel and former CEO of Equinox, Gatorade, etc. Iâ€™m also reading Option B, by Sheryl Sandberg, about facing adversity and building resilience.Â
I had to skip our yearly Junior League/Lilly event the other night, but THISÂ romper is on my mind and will probably be in my shopping cart soon!
I am so much more of a dress person than anything else in the summer, but sometimes a girl needs shorts to bum around in, and these look cute and are at an amazing price point.Â
Iâ€™m OBSESSED with this Beautycounter balancing maskÂ â€” it truly does make my skin feel more balanced and even.
GUYS the next season of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is out today!!! I canâ€™t wait to watch.Â
