Theodora On The Run

Why should Ali, Becky and Lauren have all the on-the-run fun?

Tomorrow and Thursday, I’ll be in Rhode Island for family stuff. (Good family stuff! I’m not sure yet if I can say why, but I’ll find out tomorrow.)

I’m just packing for three different cities with a difference of 35 degrees. No big deal.

Lie. I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT TO PACK. (That’s why I’m blogging! I apparently have quite a little history of blogging when I should be packing.)

I know I need to bring Tina’s book for her to sign (!), sneakers, running clothes, Garmin, my laptop and two cameras, but I have no idea what else to pack just yet.


I also had no idea what to eat for lunch. I didn’t even attempt to go grocery shopping on Sunday, since I knew I’d only be around for two days this week. Dori works across the street from me, so I gchatted her to ask where she thought I should go near our offices that wasn’t Pump. She suggested a bunch of places in the concourse under our buildings, and I finally went with Cafe Metro. I had half a turkey hummus sandwich on multigrain bread and a small soup with Italian sausage.


I forgot a snack at work today, so I was ravenous when I got home. I made a little plate of pizza nachos–multi-grain flaxseed tortilla chips with marinara sauce and feta cheese.


I warmed up Sunday’s pizza for dinner–in the oven! I’ve never had the patience to do that before tonight, and I really have no idea where the patience came from tonight.

I didn’t work out today because I’m still under the weather and didn’t want to push myself. This also means I skipped the NYRR Wall Street 3M, one of my fave races 🙁 But Ashley ran it and got an awesome PR! Go read her recap! I’m going to try to be easy on myself mentally about working out this week because I’m a little sick and traveling, but my rough plan for the rest of the week:

  • Wednesday: either nothing, a walk, some elliptical in the hotel gym, or a DVD. Giving myself lots of choices here.
  • Thursday: 3-4 mile run
  • Friday: some sort of exercise at the conference
  • Saturday: 8-mile run

I guess I should go pack now…

Do you exercise when you’re away or is it a welcome break from working out?


9th Ave Food Festival + Book Club

This morning, I headed out to Emily’s adorable apartment in Brooklyn for book club. She had fruit…



A strata, some mini frittatas from Jenny and some donuts that (the other) Emily brought. I brought the biscotti next to the mini frittatas.

After another ridiculously fun book club (where we only talked about the book for a few minutes, thank god, because I hadn’t had a chance to read it…), I hopped back on the subway to get home to walk Bailey.



He pulled me into the 9th Ave Food Festival.




I got a lemongrass chicken kebab from one of the stands, but I wasn’t impressed by this festival. Most of the festivals in NYC are the same fried food/arepas/smoothies. This one had tents from some of the restaurants on 9th Ave, but they had bigger portions than I wanted, since I had dinner plans.


My mom and her friend came in to pick up this little guy because we’re heading up to Rhode Island on Wednesday morning, I’m heading to Boston Thursday afternoon and to Fitbloggin’ on Friday morning! I miss him already…but at least I was able to clean tonight without a little dog barking at the Swiffer and vacuum.


We went out for dinner, and there were really cute little flowers on the table.


The three of us split a Caesar salad to start.


And I got a small chicken pesto pizza. I had half, and I’m saving the rest for tomorrow. I’m so tempted to go eat the leftovers in my fridge, but I’m not actually hungry. I just want them because they’re there.
