February was filled with a lot of early mornings spent covering snowstorms. This particular day I learned what freezing rain consists of. I would be fine never experiencing that again. At this point, I was living off of hot chocolate and strawberry donuts.
My photog, Tim, was a saint and dug out multiple cars that had gotten stuck that morning.
More work days spent in a New England winter wonderland that seemed to never end.
We had a few athletes in our area make it to the Winter Olympics. We covered some of the watch parties.
When Con and Shelb were visiting they stood in line for Jimmy Fallon tickets. I met up with them and low and behold, my friend Cath and her family were standing right by them in line! Crazy coincidence!
My favorite skyscraper on a cold night. I had just met up with Scott for a quick Saturday night dinner at our go-to Schnippers. He had to run back into the office after but we learned to cherish those quick meet-ups that month. His hours were crazy town and I rarely saw him. I'll never forget one morning, I woke up to my alarm at 6:00 AM and realized Scott wasn't in bed. I heard a rustling at the door and soon learned he was just coming home from work. I left 20 minutes later and thought to myself, "This is not normal." He would sleep for two hours and then have to head into the office and do it all over again. That happened a few times that month. I can laugh now but it was not fun.
I had been doing my longer training runs outside in the snow. I'd heard the Hudson River Park was probably the most plowed -- but it was still an icy mess.
To overcome seasonal depression, scarf one full sleeve in a 10-minute sitting. Cured! Big thanks so my heaven sent mother who knows just how to send sunshine through mail!
I walked pass the Ukrainian Embassy and saw this makeshift memorial during all of the unrest in Europe.
A Kenz and Ky date while our husbands worked. We ate at The Place and then got our famous reflexology massages. Man, am I beyond grateful for dear friends who understand long hours and crazy schedules.
That blue sky and sunshine sure had me believing spring was right around the corner. Psyche!
