I wasn't planning on taking it easy this week, but sometimes it happens. I had plans to go to one of the Nike events on Tuesday night, but it was cancelled. Instead, we went to the season 2 premiere of Orange is the New Black- same thing, right? :) 

Wednesday night, I went to the Brooklyn Half expo and I really want to count the 2 miles it took get to and from.  But that's a whole post of itself, as is the race. 

Of course this Thursday wasn't a "workout" day on my Nike Training App- so I improvised. Even though I couldn't do the workout with the app, I could use my Gymboss as a timer and do the workout on my own. Most workouts were 30 seconds to 2 minutes, so I set the timer to 30 seconds and did it on my own. Genius! I will admit, it was a little annoying (having to continue to keep my ipad open and see what was next), but it was better than nothing, right? I've also discovered that once you do a workout with the app, you can "replay" it whenever you want. So, I am literally in the middle of "working out" with the app to have it and then I'll replay it later in the week when I have time to do it. Make sense? 

Spoiler alert: I really really loved the Brooklyn Half! I'm so glad I got to experience it and no wonder it sells out in hours. 


  1. Oh, yay! I'm glad you loved it. =)

  2. Don't even get me started on that walk to the pre-party! I was wondering if I was going to get a medal when I finally got there!

    But congrats on Brooklyn! I can't wait to read you recap on it! :)

  3. Love your medal pic!!! Congrats on another half!! Can't wait to hear all about it!

  4. Cool medal! I can't wait to hear about the race!
