I’m currently having a mental internal struggle with whether or not to open a bottle of vin gris from Hawkes Wine that I bought in Sonoma last weekend. My best friend Carly was in town from NYC and since I was on my normal campaign of trying to make visitors fall in love with the West Coast, we had a super indulgent 5 days of bread, cheese, wine and ice cream. The last thing I need is to gain a couple pounds 3.5 weeks out from a marathon.
Long story short, I didn’t have a lot of time for blog reading the past week, but these are the best links I found. Warning: a lot involve toast.
Do you have a travel style? Mine is go-go-go-go. My dad, before his big weight loss journey where he is now basically skinnier than me, used to lose weight on vacations with me because I just have to do everything. But sometimes it’s good to build in some “relax” time, too!
I have no clue why this flight attendant is in Sao Tome and until I read her travel journal, I had no idea it existed, but now it’s on my travel bucket list.
Some towns make you lose track of time – you feel like you could just be there forever. I think that is what happened in San Francisco and that’s why I’m here now – and why I think it would be totally acceptable to live in Siem Reap.
I have had a nasty habit of parking tickets since I was a freshman at WVU and didn’t think rules applied to me. I’ve gotten
more paranoid better for the most part since moving to San Francisco but these tips for avoiding parking tickets are still great.
It honestly takes me FOREVER to watch a TV show (other than Season 4 of Girls, which I finished in less than a week). The first two seasons of House of Cards took me six months and I’m still not finished with The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. Here’s how long it takes you to binge watch popular TV shows.
I want to relive all of the travels that decorated this Brooklyn studio. Then decorate my place the same… if only I had the ascetic to not be basically minimalistic.
A good reminder that I should probably run with gels this weekend during my last 20-miler to practice fueling for a marathon. I can’t deny any advice from elite runner Tina Muir!
As a runner, there is seriously nothing more anxiety-inducing than a running injury. Here’s common running injuries and how to avoid them.
I don’t own a toaster so when I want to make toast, I just heat the oven up to 500 F and stick a piece of bread in until it begins to brown. Since I’ve thrown any semblance of being healthy out the window lately, I’m all about the idea of frying toast.
Davida is basically my Canadian, dark-haired, more together version. She, like myself, knows it isn’t safe to keep granola in the house… but how can I say no to her Honey Nut Steel-Cut Granola?

I wish I had the metabolism of a 12 year old boy so I could have this chocolate peanut butter sprinkle cake from My Name is Yeh.
