Happy Halloween

Who'd of thought there would be snow on the ground for trick or treating? Lucky for me (and the kids who are my neighbors), I live in a high rise, so you don't even need to step outside for candy -- or the gym! And even though my Halloween was kind of ruined - I DID celebrate Halloween hardcore this summer:
We were the Village People. A lot of YMCA-ing went on in preperation of this moment.

I'm super excited to be heading into the the city for the weekend to watch a friend run the NYCM. It has also inspired me to get my run on. It feels good to be running regularly again, even if it is on a treadmill.
I've got this skinny girl on my fridge for inspiration:
FYI - that's me, circa 2003. The best inspiration is YOURSELF!

Halloween = Fail

Dear Mother Nature,
Thanks for ruining my favorite holiday. I understand that Halloween is ACTUALLY on Monday, but Saturday night is the adult Trick or Treat night. And thanks to SNOW in October, I spent Saturday night on my couch (albeit, with power and my besties). We're in a fight.
Love, Sash

PS: At least this girl had fun.

Hello, Fall!

Well I'm not homeless! Instead, Nic and I are all settled in our digs. And by settled, I mean that there are bags and boxed scattered throughout the apartment. But that's ok, because unpacking is a process. It helps that we are hosting some friends for Halloween pregaming, so that should spur me on to clean things up a bit.

Fall things that have made me happy so far:

bar crawls (with ugly shirts)

the hunt!! (far hills steeple chase)

There's so many fabulous fall activities that I am still looking forward to. The crisp weather is perfect for outdoor activities. You know, like running. But have I ran outside on the gorgeous paths in my complex? Nope. But I have been hitting the gym. I'm trying to get back in the swing of things, getting to the gym before work so I can't make excuses.

What motivates you to get to the gym (or outside) to work out when all you want to do is either go out and enjoy the weather (or snuggle)?

burnt out

It's 9PM, and this girl is ready for bed. Besides a new season, and a new job, I'm also moving! This last week was madness as I've been packing and planning the move. Thus, I've been eating poorly, not running enough, and just cranky overall.   The new place has amazing trails to run through right outside my window! Plus a gym! No excuses for this girl. Especially considering I'm doing a Turkey Trot the week before Thanksgiving! I'm not sure if I want to be an indian or a pilgrim - hmm, decisions, decisions!!

i'm baaaack

To say I was a slacker this summer is an understatement. I spent most Thursdays through Mondays on the beach with my best friends, and many amazing new friends. Needless to say, fall is a welcome change. As much fun as I had, I need some stability and routine in my life! Enter: new job!! I'm working in the literary world, and so far, I love it. I also love that there is absolutely NO dress code. This job is absolute heaven for me.

I can't wait for fall to be in full swing. I love pumpkins and Halloween, and the leaves changing color.  This is also my favorite weather to run in. I've been running a lot, and am seriously looking into half marathons for the spring. October is a crazy month, but I'm looking forward to returning to the blog world - with both writing AND reading my favorite blogs.
