liz's letter

EDITOR-IN-CHIEF @lizplosser I had nothing “against” therapy… but paying someone to listen to me talk about myself for 45 minutes once a week seemed like an indulgence, if I’m being honest. Did I really need it? When would I fit it into my life? Plus, I have my family and my friends to work stuff out with. And yet earlier this year, it became clear that I needed some extra help. No matter how shiny our lives may look on the outside, we’re all struggling with something(s). So I went. And I was blown away by how cathartic it was to talk with a woman who helps me better understand, well, myself. So I’m (proudly!) sharing a little piece of my personal mental health journey because this is our annual Mind Issue, where we…

balancing act

“Having a ‘personal food style’ makes cooking way easier.” I get to work on time, pay my bills, and demonstrate the traits of a responsible grown-up. But the truth is, I’ve never become an adult when it comes to food. Leave me alone with a bag of gummy bears and it will be gone in minutes. Show me a recipe for the simplest dish and I’ll stare blankly at you. After long days of work and childcare, overpriced takeout is routine. But I want to do better. I have a 19-month-old watching me, and I don’t want her to see someone who is inept in the kitchen. And witnessing Rei discover single ingredients (avocado! strawberry!) has been like experiencing food for the first time myself. I want to be that excited about…

WHY TOWER RACES? Stair running is not only a great (and intense) cardio workout, but it also helps increase strength and power in your legs (and arms, from pulling on the handrail), says Suzy Walsham, 10-time winner of the Empire State Building Run-Up in New York City. TRAIN SMART Prep six to eight weeks prior to race day by walking or sprinting 5 to 10 floors, then resting for a minute. Repeat this pattern until you’ve climbed half the race distance. Up your floor count each week until you can conquer the full climb. Then attempt to beat your time. ROCK YOUR RACE Start slow, and work to stick to a pace where you’re not breathless, Walsham says. Take stairs two at a time (it’s faster, even if that means walking), and use the rail.…
