High Five Friday – Big News!

Happy almost weekend! This week finally, finally saw Vermont getting some summer preview temperatures and I was pretty happy about that! Given I’ve been out running in long sleeves up until recently, I’m more than ready for shorts and tank top weather. I have lots of fun news to share with you, so I figured […]

Favorite (FREE) Fitness Apps to Stay On Track and Motivated

Apps make life simpler. They’re like shortcuts for daily life. While staying fit and strong always requires hard work, at least we have apps to make tracking, motivating and pushing ourselves easier. I use a handful of fitness apps regularly and I thought it would be fun to give you a peek at what I […]

After 17 Years, I Am an American

On Wednesday, I became a US citizen. I haven’t mentioned it on the blog, first because it’s been on the calendar since the beginning of February, so it had assumed a “way in the future” feeling for me. Second, because until I was in the ceremony, reciting the Oath of Allegiance, I was kind of […]

New Trails, New Adventures

Thank you for bearing with radio silence here on Fine Fit Day while I packed and moved! Moving is always one of those life experiences you know is going to suck, but your mind kind of wipes itself clear after each move so that you don’t really remember just how MUCH it sucks until you’re […]

10 Famous Running Scenes in Movies

The other night I was watching an episode of Shameless and was surprised by a scene in which the character Fiona, aka unlikeliest-runner-ever, reveals she was a track star in high school and makes her way back to a track one morning to see how she does in the 1600m. I’m sure I wasn’t the only runner […]

Why Social Media Fitness Challenges Work

Last summer, I took part in an Instagram yoga challenge. If you follow enough fitness-based accounts, I’m sure you’ve seen these social media fitness challenges on your feed. It’s usually a challenge for a specific number of days and you’re asked to document you doing the daily move with a photo on Instagram. My parents […]

High Five Friday

It’s been a  long time since I wrote a High Five Friday post (it’s Angela’s brainchild, I just borrow it). So here’s a chance for you to catch up a little on what I’ve been up to recently and for me to share some link love.  FIVE FROM INSTAGRAM (you can follow me here if […]

A Week in New York City in Photos

What a wonderful, emotional, nostalgic, much-needed week in NYC. I saw and did so much more (and so much less) than I planned. It felt like home again and it felt like a foreign place, all at the same time. I laughed, ate, cried, ran, drank, walked (and walked and walked), reminisced and explored. The […]
