greetings from bah-ston

23 Mar

i’m in (rainy) new england this week blogging from downtown boston. being here just reminds me that i’m really a city mouse at heart. i love walking everywhere, getting dinner at 9, jaywalking through traffic. i grabbed lunch in chinatown and had a new england clam bake for dinner. eat your heart out. with all the yummy food i’m glad i’m using my own two feet for public transportation. i’m pretty sure if i was a real city girl that i would be a skinny minnie. i’m walking about 2 miles each day just to work and back. add in my 5k training and i’m getting some serious workouts!

speaking of that 5k training, i’ve made a commitment to my first on april 17th. it’s now public. i will likely have the slowest time ever recorded in the history of 5ks but i just want to finish the thing. so now it’s public so i have to follow through. 🙂 if alex and his dad can complete a triathlon (more to come) and his sister, rachel, can kick butt in an 8k i can follow through on my goals.

    Go Team Kate! Maybe you will inspire me to get my butt off the couch and start trying to do something.
