the Equinox conundrum
Tuesday I had the day off and planned to test out Equinox. My parents had received a free day pass when they checked into the NYC Marathon finish line stands and they gave them to me.

Girls on the Run Manhattan 5K
This post is wicked delayed, but I’ve been busy with work, holidays, a bit of a cold and other things.

On race day I’ll be...
