April Monthly Recap

This time last year, I was finishing up classes at Columbia Law School and getting ready to graduate. I was nervously anticipating the bar exam, while eagerly looking forward to the second half of the summer and my planned travels. I had absolutely no idea how any of it was going to go. And now? A good friend from law school and I had brunch last weekend, and she said she felt like ten years had passed rather than one, that she wouldn’t even recognize her old life. I understand what she’s saying. So much happened just this month that it felt like longer, and as for the past year, I was right about one thing back then. I had no idea that my life would be what it is today.

Five Things Friday (x4): Running Survey

I saw this running survey on Lisa’s, Kelly’s, and Heather’s blogs and thought I’d give it a whirl this Friday! It’s technically 20 questions but I figured 5 x 4 = 20. So really it’s like I’m quadrupling the Five Things Friday fun.


1.  Would you rather run along a beach path or on a mountain trail?

I’ve never run on either a beach path or a mountain trail, but if it was a path on a beach and not actually sand I would totally take the beach. I love the ocean and dislike running hills. Of course, one can have mountainous beach. Some of the best New England beaches are rocky.
