Urban Wandering

This weekend I went to NYC to hang with some friends and scope out the scene. I’ve been contemplating a move from the Big D to the Big Apple over the past few weeks. That said my friends labeled this trip as my “official recruiting” visit.

On Saturday morning I hit up the Derek Jeter 24 Hour Fitness in Midtown to get my usual 2-hour Saturday detox on. I had a sick Turbo Kick workout my girl Natalie (follow her @natalieughling) – one of my favorite NYC group fitness instructors and also the new face of Under Armor Women. After that, I did my 1st full-hour TRX Suspension Training class = KILLER CORE WORK and body weight resistance training. I felt nice and tight for the remainder of the weekend. I highly recommend you give it a whirl.

While wandering the Urban Jungle I hit up a street market in West Village, a roof top party near Gramercy Park, The Ramble and Alice’s Tea Cup in Central Park (you must try the pumpkin/caramel scone) and finally a b-day brunch/Soul Parade in Harlem. Let’s just say, this was a successful “recruiting visit” …

I’m feeling refreshed and optimistic for the week ahead. Here are some of my personal photos for you to peruse. Enjoy and Happy Monday 🙂

All good things must come to an end…

  1. Hey Brittany! I’m so excited to hear you’re considering moving to NYC – hope to have a chat soon 🙂

  2. My dearest Brit,
    You caught that East Coast bug while in undergrad school at Cornell. You’re truly a gift from above! It really doesn’t matter what coast you end up on, your success has already been ordered by The LORD! I’m proud to say that I know you. I pray that I’ve said something or have done something that has encouraged you along the way! Now, I can say my living has not been in vain.

    Much love to your darling.
