July Monthly Recap

July is usually one of my favorite months. With the Fourth of July at the beginning – barbecues, ice cream, fireworks – and my birthday toward the end – cake, more ice cream, birthday candles – there’s always been a lot to celebrate. When I was younger, I was usually away at camp for most of the month. Later on, in high school and college and law school, I was studying or doing an internship. Now, I’ve spent most of the month doing the same thing I did for the first six months of the year, but like the rest of summer, it still feels a little different. If nothing else, there’s definitely more ice cream to be seen in my July monthly recap than there was in February or March or April. And that’s saying something because we all know how much I love ice cream…

WIAW #63

This WIAW is all about some eats from Fourth of July weekend. I didn’t photograph a full day on any one day, so it’s a bit of a grab bag – all delicious. I started most of the days with a pre run snack of a Larabar and apple, then moved on to a post run brunch of 4-5 scrambled eggs with turkey or ham and cheese and slices off a loaf of Le Pain Quotidien’s gluten free seeded bread.

Weekly Workouts and Updates 6/27-7/3

Happy Fourth of July to one and all! Today is the first Fourth I’ll spend in Manhattan, meeting up with some friends for ice cream and a stroll in the park and watching the fireworks over the river tonight with Brett. We went to a barbecue at a family friend’s house outside the city yesterday, so it’s the best of both worlds. I’ll recap my weekly workouts and then some scenes from Sunday.

Weekly Workouts + Fourth of July Weekend Recap

Hope everyone had a fabulous Fourth of July weekend filled with family, friends, food and fun. I’m checking in at the start of this week to share my weekly workouts and a Fourth of July weekend recap! My weekend was low-key, and that was lovely. It started off with a ‘freedom’ run. Not just to do with the holiday, but because I ran without headphones, meaning no music and no bar exam lectures, and without any particular distance in mind. I ran when I felt like it, at the speed I felt like, slowing to a walk occasionally. In the end I probably jogged about 5 miles and walked 1 around the hilly Ridgefield roads and at the recreation center.
