Oh Friday. I’ve missed you!
Thank you all for your supportive words regarding my NYC Half marathon training. I was apprehensive about the race a few weeks ago but now I’m really looking forward to it.
This week’s Friday Round-Up is short and sweet because I’m exhausted. What was supposed to be a 4 1/2 hour drive ended up being an almost 8 hour drive. Thanks Polar Vortex.

Let’s Keep It Real About Our Bodies
Back in October, I mentioned a post that Lauren Fleshman wrote about about her experience walking in the Oiselle fashion show at New York Fashion Week.

Will you?
Is It Work If You Don’t Get Paid?
Such a great post from Allie at Vita Train for Life. I think it’s a question that many of us ask – what constitutes “work”. I know that this will resonate with other bloggers because we often spend so much time and energy in writing posts, promoting the posts, reading other blogs, etc. I know that it doesn’t sound like “work” to many people (ask my husband) but if it’s something that you’re passionate about? That you care about? P.S. I love Allie’s answer to this question.
Own Your Positive Body Image. Own Your Workouts. Own It.
I loved this post from Paige, not only because of her calm and poise in handling an obnoxious situation but also because of how she completely owns it – her positive body image, her workouts, her – and something that we could all take note of.
