City Weekend + What I Ate At Max Brenner


  This weekend went by so quickly that it took me a minute to realize that I spent both Friday night and Sunday in the city! Blog posts are probably the only reason I recall the sequence of events in my weekends! I did struggle to recall what I did on Saturday though. It was […]

    My son and I headed up to Boston early Saturday morning for a super quick and fun weekend! The purpose of our trip was to see the Islanders play the Boston Bruins at TD Garden. This little “hockey trip” is a trip I once did with my dad as a kid so it was […]

Robert McAvoy 5 Mile Race Recap (2013)

When I turned 35 a few months ago, I entered a new age bracket. And, I have concluded that checking the 35-39 box isn’t half bad. I decided at the last minute to run the Robert McAvoy 5-mile race in Long Beach yesterday morning and actually finished second for my age group. The weather was icky, sticky and misty.
