About KSL

Hi!  Welcome to Katie’s Sweaty life!

I’m a New Yorker, hailing from the great state of Ohio.  Eight years in the Big Apple and I’m still as sweet as those delicious confections called buckeyes that were invented in my charming home state.  (If you don’t know about these, or haven’t tried them, YOU SHOULD.  Oh.  Unless you have a nut allergy, in which case, I’m truly sorry.)

It’s chocolate. It’s peanut butter. It’s delicious!

I lived in Manhattan for over 7 years and then moved myself and all my crap out to the icky outer borough of Queens.  (Kidding on the “icky” part.  I actually love it there.)  I am now blissfully shacking up with my boyfriend fiance, T.  (Total dream boat.)

I spend most of my free time running, doing random stuff with T, hanging with my amazing friends, shopping (trying… very… hard… to… curb… addiction) and guzzling drinking beer.

I also like to read and I want to learn to bake and speak French better.  I love traveling, too.

I visit my sweet-a$$ family in the Buckeye State as often as possible,

I adore my folks. They still live in OH.

but I really dig my life in NYC.

I like nice people and cheese and I will probably never vote for a Republican or own anything lululemon.  I love smart TV like Breaking Bad and Mad Men and also very dumb TV like Pretty Little Liars.  (Though Veronica Mars is the best show OF ALL TIME!)

That’s me in a (buckeye) nut shell!

PS– Please be advised that although I was an English major and can be a bit of a grammar snob, I have a penchant for run-on sentences, copious parenthetical statements, and comma overuse.  Sorry. 🙂

my 12th marathon; T’s first!!

In addition to running, I also love drinking beer and wearing pretty dresses and sparkly jewelry. 🙂

    Hi Katie!

    This brought tears to my eyes. I miss you, Sweetie. I miss how much alike we are in our heads as well as being TV twins. Love you.
