When I first moved to New York, I was quite the explorer. Walking through new-to-me neighborhoods and discovering quaint coffee shops, fun little boutiques, and entirely too many bakeries (#cupcakeconnoisseur) was a large part of my weekend routine. But once I got more settled into my new home and found “my spots,” I kind of let my curiosity fall to the wayside.
Last Sunday, I participated in the 1st Annual Cycle for a Cure, an event held at FlyWheel on the Upper West Side that raised money for the National MS Society. When I was looking up the location, I realized that my UWS knowledge didn’t go above Lincoln Center. Thoughts like, “Wait, is there even a subway on the UWS?” and “How have I lived in NYC for over a year and never gone anywhere on the UWS?!” were flooding my mind.
In an attempt to broaden my uptown horizons, I headed up to the UWS a few hours before the fundraiser to check out the area and I kind of fell in love. It reminded me so much of Chicago! Now, do I think I will move to the UWS anytime soon? Absolutely not (It’s just so far from everything!), but I definitely discovered some charm and can’t wait to make the trek back up there. Being so close to the Park is a major plus, too!
Since I was headed to workout after wandering, I didn’t want to get dressed up, but didn’t want to look like a slob either. That’s where the adidas Twist Collection comes in. The line features functional separates that are able to be worn just about anywhere – yoga, pilates, running, spin class, walking the dog, and even to run errands! The adidas Boyfriend V-Neck Tee is also a favorite of mine. It’s a simple style (that’s super soft!) that can be worn for the toughest workouts (like a spin class in a hot-as-Bikram room), but also for a leisurely weekend walk through the park. I love the longer length, too!
