10 Destination Races

I should be studying for a midterm and instead, I’m scouring the internet for races. #RunningProblems. So I came across this article in Shape Magazine about the Top 10 Destination Races to Run Before You Die. 1. Avia Flower Triathlon: I can already tell you that with “triathlon” in the name, I will not be…

Update: 8 Hour Diet

Like most diets, I never seem to stick with them. I had high hopes for this one. It didn’t seem too hard because I was able to eat what I wanted. I have decided to start it up again. Moving forward, I’m going to do the 8 Hour Diet. I can tell my weight has…

Belly Dancing

Back in my Zumba post I mentioned I bought a Groupon for FunFitNYC. They offer more than just Zumba classes, they also have belly dancing. I’m currently on Spring Break from NYU right now, so because I didn’t have class tonight I decide to try belly dancing. I loved it. I want to go back again….

Zumba

Tonight I decided to try out Zumba. I found a Groupon from FunFitNYC and decided to try it out. I have the Zumba DVDs, but that’s nothing compared to what I did in class tonight. It was so intense. Basically one hour of non-stop cardio. We did tons of different dances with lots of hip…

February Recap

Another month gone and another month of basically no runs… I believe I mentioned this in a recap post long ago, but I use Nike+ for my statistics, so they’re not always accurate. For example, when I did the Royal Family 5K this month, I didn’t run with my tracker (because I knew the boys…
