I've been living in Jersey City for almost 5 years now after a stint in NYC. Both have had their time and place, and right now JC is the place for me.
I love traveling. I have been doing it compulsively for about 4 years now, to all sides of this earth. I really think food and culture are almost the same thing, and traveling to new places inspires me in new directions.
I recently took up running and have thoroughly enjoyed what it has done for both my body and mind. I would say the greater impact has been mental....nothing like a fulfilling long run! I just completed my first half marathon, this was 8 months after being unable to run 2 miles consecutively. I trained for the 2012 NYC Marathon and ran the Bucks County Marathon 2 weeks later.
Now I have to answer these cookie cutter questions...enjoy!
