Living and recording the life of a
30 40-something dilettante.
A Californian-born now turned New Yorker living and running in Brooklyn with her husband and adorable rat terrier named Bandit. I came up with A Fast Paced Life several years ago when I wanted a blog name that was flexible enough to adapt to whatever changes may occur in my life and interests. I liked A Fast Paced Life because 1) I live in New York, 2) I’m always trying to be a faster runner, and 3) it sounded better than A Mid-Packer’s Life.
I run for Prospect Park Track Club (PPTC).

Hi there! Thanks for stopping by my blog and checking out my comic! I see your blog will be a source of inspiration when putting on my running shoes seems like mission impossible.
Thanks for visiting and commenting. Your comic was so cute.
Thanks for stopping by. I don’t get to NYC often enough so I may do some vicarious living through your posts on running & the arts scene.
Thanks for following me.
As you know I think you live an exciting life and I was wanting to nominate you for the Liebster Blog Award. Being the polite Canadian, I wanted to ask if you were cool with that first.
I’m so flattered. Sure, I’ll accept the nomination. Thank you.
Awesome! I’ve got you in my last post “Liebster Award”.
Cali runnerchicks, yea!! 😉 Even if you’re in NY now, CA is in your heart…hehe. So funny, love that you clarified about the small plates thing because I was about to question…now my question is what is NY’s obsession with small plates??? #runnersEAT
NYers in their 20s and 30s tend to be foodies. I was a foodie long before I was a runner. We like to try several different things. Now that I run, I plow through several small plates. I’ll never forget the time when a waiter told me he lost count of how many plates he brought me. Not the table. Just me.
I hope all is going well for you! I have nominated you for the Sunshine Award, should you choose to accept this award check out my post! http://runningtalltails.wordpress.com/2014/02/05/we-could-all-use-a-little-sunshine and happy blogging!
Thanks for the nomination! I greatly appreciate the recognition.
Hello! Nice to meet you 🙂 So glad you commented on my blog, I look forward to supporting you in your journey from now on 🙂 From one east coast-er to another 🙂
Hi! I love your blog, so I’ve nominated you for the Liebster Award 🙂 http://fatgirltoironman.co.uk/2014/05/26/liebster-love/
Thank you! It’s so nice of you to nominate me.
Just interested in living life to the fullest. Love the quote “life begins at the end of your comfort zone.”
I LOVE that I needed a dictionary 9 words into your blog. 😉
Ha! Thanks! My husband said that one of the first things he noticed about me was my vocab.
great posts! that’s a great time to read them as I’m terrified by my upcoming first marathon 🙂
I was too! Totally normal reaction to have. Trust your training. Don’t start out too fast. And eat during the race like it was your job. Other than that, relax and have fun.
Thank you! Yup, bought a ton of honey stinger chews for the big day 🙂
Elle! Thank you so much for your donation to “Team Thorne” for the 5K this weekend! Your generosity is very much appreciated. Tell Bandit that Piper says hi. 😄
My pleasure! Bandit barks hello back to Piper. 😀
Thanks for a plug on a post. Keep up the running and blogging and I’m glad you have more self worth than to booty-shake on Instagram 🙂
Hahaha, thanks for reading and commenting. Good luck to you!
