Hi friends! Long time no chat.Â
My mom has been really sick, and so Iâ€™ve been spending a lot of time with my family or, quite frankly, being really sad.
But today, Iâ€™m out on Long Island with my coworker Mallory because weâ€™re doing a triathlon tomorrow. Sheâ€™s turning 30 and wanted to do a tri for her birthday, because, these are my coworkers and who was I to say no to her on her birthday?!
So, out on the LIRR we went, bikes in tow.Â
Weâ€™re working remotely today instead of taking the day off, so weâ€™re sitting outside working in the sun. Things could be worse.
I havenâ€™t done a tri in two years so Iâ€™m a little nervous, mostly about the swim (the water is NOT warm yet, friends!!!), but Iâ€™m just going to have fun with it and use it as the distraction that it is.
In other distractions, I went to a friendâ€™s going away party last weekend that ended up being an epic all day long party, and it was the most fun Iâ€™d had in a while. We started at Lavender Lake in Gowanus and then went to Pig Beach (where I ran into this lovely former coworker above) and then to Monteroâ€™s in BK Heights for a little karaoke action.
I have a LOT more to say about this topic, but I went to an event on Monday and another on Tuesday about yoga/meditation, and good god do I need more of it in my life. I went to Lyons Den on Tuesday after listening to its founder, Bethany Lyons on Aliâ€™s podcast.Â (<â€” Are you listening yet? Iâ€™m obsessed.)
Thatâ€™s about all. Just trying to look some some beauty in the breakdown.
