Fitness Magazine #FitBlogNYC Event I woke up feeling 100x better after a full night of sleep. Oddly enough, sleeping in a fancy hotel bed > tweaking your neck on a red eye flight. Shocking.

Last night we had a dinner that wasn’t noteworthy blogworthy. Then, I convinced Tina to get fro-yo with me. It was an easy sell wlEmoticon winkingsmile3 Fitness Magazine #FitBlogNYC Event

This morning we hit up Central Park again for a run. The weather is perfection for running right now and there were a ton of people out.

I ended up doing 3 with Tina and an additional 2.7 alone.

Then, I hit up Melissa’s Gourmet Deli for breakfast. I stayed near here when I was in NYC last June and remember this place having great sandwiches (and tons of options).

It just worked out that I was going to be in NYC for the WF event so I got to attend! I was excited because Tina went last year and it looked like a lot of fun.

There were A LOT of bloggers here! I feel like the east coast has a lot more bloggers than the west – might be a population thing, might be that they’re avoiding me because I’m weird…

Then, Fitness Magazine Beauty Director Heather Muir interviewed Sarah Lucero, Executive Director of Global Artistry with Stila Cosmetics.

She shared a bunch of great make-up tips like:

  • Power Pout is hot right now (strong lip color)
  • Coral Blush – do it
  • Make sure everything you are wearing has a purpose – don’t slap on random makeup (note to Monica, listen up)
  • She swears by misting for a fresh look

There were also healthy snacks. I grabbed a green juice.

My ‘blog is my business’ was a super interesting session too. The line up was Smitten Kitchen, Jill Hanner, Possessionista and Erin from Fitbottomed Girls – um, these are the best in the business!

Sadly, I had to leave early to catch my flight. Boo.

It was a whirlwind trip, but so good to spend time with my favorite Bostonian. Thanks Tina!

I hit up the salad bar in the Jet Blue terminal at JFK for lunch. I grabbed a pack of hard boiled eggs from the event and added those the to salad too.

I am soooo spoiled but this is a direct, cross country flight and it doesn’t have wifi. First world problems to the max, but I was hoping to get a bunch of work done on the plane. This must be what it was like to live in cave man times…

time travel is it possible Fitness Magazine #FitBlogNYC Event

Oh well, guess I have to read these magazines my RW friends gave me…

See you later!

Question: Popcorn or Kettle Corn?

I’m going to say 60% of the time kettle corn, 40% regular.


  1. M. Love says

    Ha I might be west coast soon – you can totally hang out with me and show me the ways of the blogging world and help me get faster at running :) am I weird that I’m not a huge popcorn person?

  2. says

    Either! I’m not picky!

    It’s a good thing I’ve started reading more blogs and that they post fashion advice!

    Otherwise I’d be wearing the same clothes I wore in HS.

    …wait, I do!

  3. says

    Kettle Korn 100% of the time.

    I wonder when we’ll have a local fit exercise running or healthy blogging event/conference.

  4. says

    Kettle corn at home… movie theater popcorn at the movies : ) I recently flew from DC to Seattle and was able to do direct on my way west but coming back east I had a lay over. From 6am – 9am EST when I flew out at 10pm PST. Talk about a night / day at work from hell.

  5. says

    I’d have to say both.. if I am presented with kettlecorn, I eat it so fast. But, i rarely ever have it on hand. If I have popcorn, it’s usually a popped bag and it’s gone quite fast as well!

    Jealous of the meet and greet! Looks like so fun :) I’m sure those magazines were able to entertain you on the way back.. but I seriously hate when planes don’t have wifi! Especially long ones! Don’t they know people have work to do?

  6. says

    Kettle corn is so good!!! I view it as a ‘treat’ where as popcorn is just a snack. Make sense? I love both equally, but for different reasons haha.

  7. says

    Glad to hear you had a great time and got good info. I would have loved to be there. But i dont blog enough and am about to deploy so no-go for me.

    I love love love those Kettle Korn Popcorner chips. They are the perfect mix of sweet, salty yet crunchy :D Only place i can find them out here is Staples. Random but worth it.

  8. says

    So glad you had a great time! It looks like it was fun! Still jealous of your running in Central Park (one day!).

    I choose Kettle Corn 80% of the time! Now I need to find those Popcorner Chips!!!

  9. says

    I loved that green juice – I’m not usually a green monster type of girl but this one was delish…We may appear to have more bloggers on this coast but you guys have more race options year round!

  10. says

    I am SO HAPPY you went to Flavaboom. In my opinion, they have the best Froyo in the city. Seriously. I make the trek over there when I really fancy it and have even stopped in the middle of the winter because it’s just that wonderful.
