I was reminded today how little I  update my blog. This is true, but while I have not been updating this one, I have been updating my new art website blog at hilarylorenz.wordpress.

Mostly my excuse is that I have not been running, but rather making art, a lot of art, over 4,000 prints in the last few months to be exact. But now all my shows are up and I am hanging around NYC promoting them and running. Yes, I got back to running again. It is crazy how fast I can get of shape and quite frankly it is a lot more fun to run an 8:00 pace with a 150HR than a 9:30 pace with a 150HR. But that is my reality right now.

Last night I took my dog Homer and jogged 6 miles through the Bronx Streets and  into Van Cortlandt Park. It was completely dark, no street lights, warm but with a very cool fog lifting off the fields. I really needed a headlight as I could not see four feet in front of me, but oh I really loved it and I think Homer did too.

Plans for the next couple of months include, selling my NYC apartment, going to Northern Ontario for an art’s residency, closing my exhibitions at Wave Hill, NY and the Printmaking Center of NJ on December 7, closing my show at the Gallery at Pioneer Bluffs after a reception on December 12, then hunkering down in Abiquiu, NM until next August. And who knows if the stars align I might just stay out there in the high desert. Oh and I am in two holiday sales, where I will have a boat load of hand printed journals, one in Brooklyn and one in Los Alamos, NM. I will also post some here.

Happy Fall.

ImageHere is my cool as a cucumber Boston Marathon 2014 finish. I had the best run ever (not timing wise but fun wise) with my Santa Fe Strider buddy Andy. Andy and I had not made  specific plans but we knew we were in the same wave same corral. I honestly had no idea how the race would go because I had not done any tempo  or track work. But we worked together and really enjoyed ourselves. This is Andy in motion, me waving behind him. Kind of a funny photo. Image
I ran a decent amount including the Costal Trail Run’s Canyon Meadow 50k trail race in Redwood Regional Park, Oakland California where I won the 40-49 AG and came in 4th female overall in March. That was cool! But I had not done any marathon pace runs. I did not wear a watch, ran by feel and ran with Andy. I finished with a 3:49 (my qualifying time is 4:00) and was  happy with that. We ran very consistent up to the Newton Hills, and then it was just so damn hot we were both baking in the sun. I made a new friend, Ayako Yamazaki who is an awesome runner. We were both staying at the Chinatown hostel which I highly recommend. Super friendly, super cheap, Leed certified building, great food! I reserved a bed in a room for 8, Ayako and her friend were also in the room. It turns out both of us are running Pike’s Peak Marathon in August. Unlike me, she trained well all winter long and our times certainly reflected that. She did great. I can’t wait to meet up again in Colorado.

So guess what? My next sabbatical starts officially on as of May 28th, and goes until August 15, 2015! I began this blog 7 years ago during my first sabbatical. So my plan outline for the next few months:

June – Artist Residency at Matfield Outpost, Matfield Green, KS

July 27th – Run on the Volcano, Trail 1/2 in NM.
August- Art Printmaking in Abiquiu, NM (running with Santa Fe Striders)
August 17th – Pikes Peak Marathon
Sept – Art Printmaking in Abiquiu, NM (running with Santa Fe Striders)
October 4 – Exhibition Opening, The Gallery at Pioneer Bluffs, Matfield, KS

Wave Hill opening October 18, Artist talk November 16
November 22 – JFK50 mile

Drive back to KS, then NM.
There will be a stint in Espanola, Ontario, Canada, need to confirm dates where I (and my dogs)  get to be  guests at the Anishinabe Spiritual Centre where my good friend Fr. Teo Ugaban is a priest. Teo was one of my art students at Parsons school of art way back when. I am especially excited because Teo is coming to NYC this weekend. I have not seen him since he left for Sri Lanka, 3 years ago. He was my first guest for PrintSocial. And hey I just learned that Instagram stole my title, PrintSocial. Should I send them a cease and desist letter?  I have had it a hell of a lot longer than them. 

I am sure additional races, more trips, and assorted goodies will be included in here, but I wanted to touch on the main points. IN about a month Downtown Brooklyn Journal is coming out. I designed the cover and have an 8 page spread of my work in the middle. It is going to be really cool!

Here are a few pics on what I have been doing but just wait, there is so much more:

Christmas is just two days away and it is hard to believe the warm weather in New York City. This weekend on solstice I had a great run from my home across the Manhattan Bridge through Brooklyn and back over the Williamsburg Bridge to Manhattan. It got so warm I had to take off my shirt. I had to admit it does feel pretty good to be running shirtless in December, but I do miss the snow.

I am planning my 2014 running calendar side by side with the exhibition schedule. I decided to head out to Boulder to see my friend Mardi and run the USATF Cross Country Championships in February. In March I go to California to see my friends Audra and Loren and run the 50k Canyon Meadow Trail Run with Coastal Trail Runs. It is just outside of San Fran in the Redwood Regional Park. April I have the Boston Marathon, then nothing until Sept. I will run the 5th Avenue Mile and then go back to Utah for the Big Cottonwood and repeat the JFK50 in November. That should pretty much do it, but I am sure I will do a few small races in between those. I would really like to run more cross country.

I have two solo exhibitions in October, one at Wave Hill in New York which I am preparing for now and one in Kansas at the Gallery at Pioneer Bluffs, Matfield Green. I will most likely head to New Mexico in May sublet my Lower East Side Apartment. Do a load of artwork and climbing in CO, then head to Kansas and work my way up to NYC for two months. If all works as I have planned I will be on sabbatical from June 2014 until August 2015. In 2015 I am going to Australia for a bit, and hopefully have an exhibition and run the Overland Track Trail Race. I am about to send out a few applications for exhibitions around the US and I am pretty excited about that.

Over the last few years at work I have been taking courses in the graduate program of Exercise Physiology and realized I just about finished my M.S. degree, so next semester I will take my remaining courses and complete it. I also just completed my NASM-CES class and will take my certification this week along with my NSCA-CSCS certification and next semester my NASM-PES certification. I will be a super certified M.S. Exercise Physiologist with stength/conditioning and nutrition concentrations. That is pretty exciting, so who knows if I get tired of teaching, actually tired of all the administration paperwork is more accurate, I am explore new options.

Wednesday I begin house sitting for a friend and I am very excited about it. It gives me much close access to trails, plus a lot more room to move around in. She has a real house. The dogs are going to love and so am I. I will have three weeks to focus on craving blocks for new artwork. It is going to be a great time.
