I don’t know about you all, but I’m eagerly anticipating my week of Friendsgivings to prep for the main event next week. I’ve got pumpkin (not lattes) on my mind as we head into a pre-holiday week of either a tailspin to prepare for jetsetting or some lax days for those of us who are already in vacation mode. If it’s the latter, check out our social calendar to fill up your extra hours!

I recently attended the opening of Mile High Run Club, a brand new treadmill class gym in Noho. Offering a 60 minute “distance” class or a 45 minute “dash” class, both with varying intensity based on your level of fitness, this is a great alternative to bracing the freezing cold for a jog.
