It’s officially the first day of fall but it’s basically been fall to me since the day after Labor Day. I’ve already gone apple picking, hung out in a pumpkin patch and done some leaf peeping in the Catskills. I love this time of year. It’s beautiful out and the weather is just the right … More Happy First Day of Fall! Some Hudson Valley Adventures
If you’ve been following my blog for years, you know I LOVE fitness classes especially HIIT and spin classes. Besides the 6+ months the last semester of law school/bar prep, that I was using SWEAT/BBG and Classpass religiously. Eventually, found BBG kinda boring. Plus I hate working out at home. Especially when you live in … More Working out outdoors, at home, and indoors? Plus a workout streak
For the first few months of the pandemic, I was sneaking out of the city for some hiking (**sneaking out because some people didn’t approve of leaving their apartment ever).

Almost 4 months without writing…where did the time go?! I’ve just been busy. There were the holidays, work (I left an old job, started a new one two days later), and all the hobbies. Races you say? 2020 is going to be the year I get back into running. Or was? I’m currently signed up … More Where have I been?
I love fall. I love sweaters and fall hiking, fall climbing, fall beverages, campfires, fall half-marathons and marathons. Everything is better in the fall. I think we all know that my greatest downfall is overbooking myself. For most of September and October, I had something going on or was away – backpacking one weekend, my … More Goodbye to my favorite season (Fall!)!
So Joshua Trees are really cool not-tree trees. It’s a succulent. A month ago I spent a few days in Joshua Tree (the town) and in the park (Joshua Tree National Park). We took a direct flight from JFK to Palm Springs then an uber to the town of Joshua Tree, which is at the … More Climbing in Joshua Tree, California
To be honest, this all sounds more hardcore than it actually was. My climber girlfriends are super into backpacking and camping. Thanks to the NJ Transit, I missed my first trip with them. Two weeks later, me and bae ended up going. Something I didn’t know until recently – there are lean-to’s/shelters in Harriman State … More My First Backpacking Trip
