Greenway Run

in All Posts

It’s really amusing to me to see how much Sarah and I have changed in the 4 years since we graduated from college – but the best part is that we changed in many of the same ways!  We both went from being party girls (well, we’re still party girls at heart, but you know what I mean) to active girls  She’s even lost 28 pounds through healthy diet and exercise!


Four years ago, if you told me Sarah and I would be running 5.0 miles the morning of her bachelorette weekend, I would’ve laughed in your face!



We did 5.0 miles in about 55 minutes… Those hills crushed my soul!  I had to take a few walking breaks to get to the top.  I think I’m going to have to become a better hill runner when we move to North Carolina next month!


Sarah’s route takes her through this gorgeous neighborhoods…


…And pops her out next to a nice greenway.  The former urban planner (I worked in the field for 3.5 years until last September) really admires cities and neighborhoods that make an effort to integrate green space into planning.  It’s so important to have stuff like this!  It really does improve quality of life.


After our run, we showered and headed out to lunch.  Sarah’s been talking about Mr. Noodle and Rice since she picked me up from the airport – she knows I love a good Asian fusion!


I ordered the tofu yaki noodles, but I asked the waitress to make it as “healthy as possible” by minimizing the oil and adding extra veggie.  It was really good!


Fried tofu is the best kind of tofu.  Baked just does not compare!


I ate most of the tofu and about 1/2 of the noodles.


And I had two cups of green tea.  I think I need a cup of coffee now, too, because those noodles were quite the coma food.


Time to road trip to PITTSBURGH!  I graduated from University of Pittsburgh in 2006 and haven’t been back since 2007 or so.  Can’t wait to see my college town again!


Let’s hear your college pride!  Where did you go to school?



  • Kelly May 28, 2010, 1:16 pm

    Haha, I think my college roommate and I are going for a bike ride the morning of my bachelorette party. I think college me might have believed it was possible, but unlikely haha.

    I went to BC and I graduated the same year as you. However, it’s 20 minutes from where I live now and my sister goes there so I’ve been back a few times!

  • Rachel May 28, 2010, 1:20 pm

    I went to the University of North Texas but our football team sucks, so none of us have much school pride.

    (If a school in Texas doesn’t have a good football team, it really dampers the school pride!)

  • Brittney May 28, 2010, 1:20 pm

    Ohio State! Go Bucks!! 🙂

  • Corie May 28, 2010, 1:23 pm

    Mansfield University. Small state school in PA but still SO much fun!

  • Freya @ Brit Chick Runs May 28, 2010, 1:23 pm

    That tofu looks fab!
    I am at Essex University, but I HATE it!! I can’t wait to finish – no college pride for me 😛

  • Bree May 28, 2010, 1:25 pm

    Representin’ North Dakota here – went to North Dakota State University. We always have a great time when we go back, especially since a lot of good friends still live there.

  • Sarah May 28, 2010, 1:27 pm

    Love greenways! We actually live in a suburb now that used to be a HUGE ranch and the owner sold the ranch to the city and in the city rules/regulations/purchase agreement it was written in that x % of the city had to be maintained as open space. Result, trail/park/running mecca! The rule about fences not being taller than 5 feet and being open between the slats is a little irritating, but the views are awesome! It’s so nice to walk out of the complex and have a ton of trails to choose from!

  • Emily May 28, 2010, 1:28 pm

    goooooooo pirates!!!
    (yea, I have a little school spirit)

  • Sarah for Real May 28, 2010, 1:35 pm

    Washington State, GO COUGS!

  • Madeline - Greens and Jeans May 28, 2010, 1:36 pm

    I graduated from Brown University! Go Bears! My college roommate and I had a reunion weekend in New York in February and while we had a slumber party, things just aren’t the same when you drink “grown up” drinks instead of using EmergenC as a shot chaser because that’s the only thing you can find…

    • Liza May 28, 2010, 2:21 pm

      I went to Brown too! Now I’ll definitely have to check out your blog! Yay Brown!

  • susan (stepping off the coaster) May 28, 2010, 1:37 pm

    i completely agree about incorporating green space into urban areas… that’s why i love Portland, Oregon! have you ever been here?? i think you’d love it… urban growth boundaries and green space right in the city.
    it’s the best!!

    • Caitlin May 28, 2010, 1:47 pm

      No I haven’t been to Portland but
      I would live to!

  • Beth @ Beth's Journey to Thin May 28, 2010, 1:37 pm

    I totally agree with you about the fried tofu! I’ve heard panko crusting/baking it can come in at a close second. I’m going to attempt it soon so I’ll keep you posted!

  • samantha May 28, 2010, 1:39 pm

    all i have to say is… GO BLUE!!!!

    after 4 years at the university of michigan, i’m all about football. and beers. and not having a full time job. sigh.

    • Abby May 28, 2010, 3:52 pm

      I went to U of M too! GO BLUE!!

  • Carolyn @ lovinlosing May 28, 2010, 1:41 pm

    That food looks delicious! I would totally try it tonight (someplace similar around here) but I have a race tomorrow, and you know the rule! Do you think sushi is a good race food?

    • Carolyn @ lovinlosing May 28, 2010, 1:41 pm

      Obviously, I mean for the night before. LOL

      • Caitlin May 28, 2010, 1:46 pm

  • Camille May 28, 2010, 1:44 pm

    My college experience has been… unique.
    My Freshman year was spent at the University of San Francisco.
    My Sophomore year was spent at a community college in San Diego.
    My Junior year was spent at San Diego State University.
    And My Senior year (parts 1 and 2) will be spent at Oregon State University.


  • Natalie @ Keep It Sassy May 28, 2010, 1:44 pm

    I had no idea you worked as an urban planner! I just listened to a podcast from Stuff You Should Know all about that, and I’m actually going to be doing a bunch of urban planning/research stuff next year in school!

    Currently I go to The Evergreen State College in Washington. We’re known more for the radical students, but I think the best part about TESC are all of the interdisciplinary classes and having narrative evaluations! Last year I went to Rhodes in Memphis, another from the “Colleges That Change Lives” list.

  • Johanna B May 28, 2010, 1:44 pm

    I did my BA at Northwestern in Natchitoches, LA and my graduate work at University of North Texas in Denton, TX. I say I’m not going back to school again but I know better than to say never.

  • Evan Thomas May 28, 2010, 1:45 pm

    Agreed! Fried is just too good.

    A Brown bear and proud!

  • Hallie May 28, 2010, 2:12 pm

    haha this is so fun! I went to Ithaca College in upstate NY…you know, the school from “Road Trip” (not really actually, but kinda). And this fall I’m starting grad school at the University of San Diego. Ithaca is really pretty and I wish I was as into being healthy/active and nature as I am now! I didn’t take advantage of it at ALL…but oh, I did take advantage of $10 handles of vodka and Chinese food that delivers until 2 AM 🙂

  • Summer May 28, 2010, 2:13 pm

  • Heather (Heather's Dish) May 28, 2010, 2:20 pm

    that is a seriously gorgeous run! and that’s so awesome that sarah got healthy…she’s done exactly what I HOPE to do!

  • Kelly May 28, 2010, 2:21 pm

    I went to the Illinois Institute of Art in Chicago, and it wasn’t the typical college experience, that’s for sure. I commuted from my parent’s home so I really didn’t get that sense of freedom nor did I form the bonds w/my friends there like most people do.

    My husband, however, went to Purdue University and graduated 2 years after I did… so I had a few years of campus life.. just didn’t go to school there 🙂 I feel much more connected w/Purdue than I do my art school..

  • Deirdre May 28, 2010, 2:21 pm

    Where can you get onto the Winchester Green Circle Path? I live in Northern Virginia, but have heard of this path many times, and would like to venture out some times. There website isn’t complete, so I’m not sure where it starts/ends… parking….etc. Can you find out from your friends the details?

    Thanks Caitlin!

    • Caitlin May 28, 2010, 2:33 pm

      Sarah says there’s a 24 Fitness near the trail you can park at!

    Yes, my boyfriend and I are that ONE couple dressed in all our gear at Orlando Alehouse, monopolizing one of the TVs, surrounded by gator and ‘nole fans 🙂

  • Charise May 28, 2010, 2:51 pm

  • Chrissy (The New Me) May 28, 2010, 3:06 pm

    I graduated from Purchase College in NY in 2004. It’s a small art school in the state system, and also the place where I met my boyfriend. They had a vegan option in the cafeteria every night! It was bliss.

    • Lauren May 28, 2010, 10:54 pm

      I live right by there. I love the Neuberger Museum. So cool.

  • Sara May 28, 2010, 3:38 pm

    i just had a question…
    do you ever get tired of blogging so much or get the feeling
    that you have to keep up with it because of your readers?
    i guess im just wondering if you ever get tired of having to remember everything you do and to take pictures of everything in order to document it later? (and carrying a big camera with you-especially on runs?)
    oh and im going to UNF in Jacksonville in the fall and i cant wait 🙂

    • Caitlin May 28, 2010, 6:29 pm

      Not really… I love blogging and don’t mind!

  • Jessie May 28, 2010, 3:39 pm

    University of California, Santa Cruz! If you haven’t been, you should go; you’d love it! The campus is a redwood forest with some buildings, and it made me feel so peaceful and overjoyed to hike to class through such beauty every day. I miss it so much! Best mascot ever, too: Banana slugs!

    • Espie May 29, 2010, 1:02 am

      I’m from San Jose and have taught many a cheer camp on the ucsc campus. The hill from the rec field to the dorms is my favorite butt firmer 🙂

      • Jessie May 29, 2010, 8:28 am

        Haha! I know exactly the cheer camp you’re talking about because the elliptical machines at the gym face the field where you guys would practice! Definitely had some fun workouts watching.

  • Mindy May 28, 2010, 3:55 pm

  • Tina May 28, 2010, 4:26 pm

    I love areas that have green space as well. So important!

    I agree that fried tofu is so good. The extra little bit of “crunch” to it makes it so much better. Have fun for the bachelorette party!

    And I went to the University of Georgia. Boy have I changed since my days there as well.

  • Helen May 28, 2010, 4:35 pm

    I love it when cities incorporate greenery into their plan. Being from the countryside I miss the openess of green space now I live in a town.
    I don’t suppose any of the US bloggers will know where this is but I went to uni at Royal Holloway in Surrey. I miss it so much and haven’t been back since I graduated in 2008. I need to back this year.

  • Heather @ Side of Sneakers May 28, 2010, 4:47 pm

    I love when your friends change in similar ways to you- it’s the best!! I went to the University of North Carolina at Greensboro- what whaaat! (haha I’m sure nobody’s ever heard of it) but now I “go” to Northeastern University (online)

  • Lindsay @ Summit Sandwiches May 28, 2010, 4:53 pm

    UC Berkeley! In true Berkeley fashion, I was president of the student co-op association. Not so into the sports and school spirit, though now that I’m gone I wish I hadn’t been so anti!

  • Cat May 28, 2010, 5:12 pm

    Saw a couple of people represent Washington State Univ. so I had to throw my hat in for a little U-Dub pride! That’s the University of Washington in Seattle for you! Wash. State was our rival, but honestly I’m not really into football, so it didn’t really matter now or then to me! I just loved my school for my academic experience and LOVED being in Seattle!

  • caronae May 28, 2010, 5:18 pm

    Columbia University! Go Lions…except not, our sports suck and we all live in the library, lol.

  • Katie@ Two Lives, One Lifestyle May 28, 2010, 5:34 pm

    I went to Bucknell and I’m obsessed with it!! Kelli (who is the other blog author on the blog) and I were much more likely to get a beer and fries together during college than say, run a marathon… next weekend!!!

  • steph-exercise physiologist and artist! May 28, 2010, 5:54 pm

    Food looks so good!
    Trails look so nice!
    Running hills almost kills me (literally! haha!) every time. Last year I ran up killer hills in Puerto Rico where my Grandfather lives. Its 4,000ft w/ hella inclines. I was trying to keep up with my maniac sister and I had the worst exercise induced asthma! I had to put my head in between my knees to get my breath back.
    Florida is sooooo flat! even little hills feel hard to me 🙂

  • Lindsay @ The Ketchup Diaries May 28, 2010, 6:21 pm

    Love hearing where everyone went to school! I went to a small school in Newport, RI. If you ever get the chance to visit there – you should. It’s gorgeous!

    Green spaces are amazing! I’m an architecture major at the University of Oregon so I love love love green spaces as a designer, but Oregon is also super environmentally friendly and loves sustainable design so its a double whammy for me.

    I totally agree about the fried tofu.

    I went to the University of Vermont. I actually almost went to Pitt though. I was waitlisted at UVM and accepted Pitt, but then I got into UVM which was like my dream school. I think I would have liked Pitt too if I’d ended up there.

  • jenny May 28, 2010, 6:50 pm

    I go to school at NYU in New York City right now! I’m starting my final semester in the fall! Scary. That path looks amazing! That’s the one thing I do miss about the suburbs… lots of green space

I live in LA but i am from pittsburgh, I went to the college at Carlow, next to pitt and lived in oakland for about 5 years! 🙂

  • Gavi @ GaviGetsGoing! May 28, 2010, 7:07 pm

    It’s so nice to see how you and your bff have changed in similar ways! I hope that’s the same for me and my college friends. I went to Wesleyan, a small liberal arts school in Middletown, Connecticut. Go Cardinals!

  • Jojo May 28, 2010, 7:08 pm

    Florida State University. Graduated in 2006. GO NOLES!!! I’m a totally different person now than I was on graduation day. It would be interesting to visit Tallahassee with the lifestyle I have now.

  • Jessica @ The Process of Healing May 28, 2010, 7:16 pm

    Heres a new one… Auckland University of Technology (AUT). I have a Diploma in Hospitality Management, and when I graduate again next year I will have a Bachelor in Education and a Certificate in Montessori teaching. I didn’t room with anyone, since I already live in Auckland, but I can’t even picture myself running 5 miles in 5 years, let alone with anyone I went to uni with!

  • Genevieve May 28, 2010, 7:34 pm

  • Cassie @ A Very Busy Mind May 29, 2010, 10:43 am

    I’m definitely still a party girl at heart, too. So crazy to realize how much our friends have grown up since college. All the weddings, babies, and house-buying is making my head spin.

    I went to PURDUE UNIVERSITY! Boiler Up! I loved every single minute of it, and would go back in a heartbeat. I love this question because I’m pretty much bursting with Purdue pride, and love an opportunity to talk about the place!

  • Lauren May 29, 2010, 1:05 pm

    looks super pretty! we have a ton of trails like that in charlotte!! are you excited? how’s the house search?

    • caitlin May 30, 2010, 3:50 pm
