New Ms Fit Feature: Jessica Hennessy

Jessica Hennessy, Owner of Mercury Moving and Storage and blogger of The Haute Mamas .



I have so much keeping me busy, I don’t know where to start! I guess it makes sense to start with the priority, which are my two exuberant little boys. At 3 and 5-years-old, they are basically like to superballs- once they get going they are hard to catch!

I own a moving and storage company, founded by cherished late husband, Garry Hennessy. Everyone at Mercury Moving is gearing up for the moving season. That will undoubtedly keep us very busy with challenging tasks and late nights. Luckily, I am surrounded by an amazing staff who helped to carry Mercury through Garry’s illness. They are the reason why we have such a great reputation. I am forever grateful for their loyalty, hard-work, and of course great sense of humor. (The latter makes everything a little easier. J)

If two active boys and managing a business weren’t enough, I’ve recently taken on a partnership as co-blogger with Kim Gioioso of The Haute Mamas. In just three short months, it has been a therapeutic and amazing experience. I love to write and am a creative person. I also strongly believe in personal hobbies, as an outlet for stress. Writing for such a fun blog has filled these needs. I am looking forward to a long partnership and sharing stories and learning more about myself along the way.



For me, exercise equals sanity. I used to be a 30 to 40 mile per week runner, but it’s been hard to find the time over the past few years. With the sun hanging around later in the day and warmer weather starting to blow in our direction, I am promising myself to make the time. There’s no better way to clear my head and work through problems than a long run. Besides running, Soul Cycle has helped me burn some calories and do some soul searching. I’ve never taken a more emotional exercise class! They weren’t kidding when they picked the company name!

Fashion? Oh my goodness! I love everything. My fashion sense has always morphed from one day to the next, depending on my mood. As a young girl, I quickly discovered fashion was a fantastic mode for creative expression. And so, as an adult, nothings changed. If I’m feeling frisky, I may wear leather leggings. If I am feeling all business, then clean lines and a neat heel do the trick. As far as trends, despite our all white winter, I am digging the white on white trend. I think white should be a leading color choice anytime the weather starts to cook. I am also obsessed with Valentino’s Rockstud line; I want them all! I better start booking some mega moves if I want to entertain that obsession!



I’m pretty new to Instagram, and I have to say I am fascinated. It’s like a strategy game; picking out the right hashtags to attract the right audience.

We want to be your subject matter expert!

Marathon Ms Fit, Meg Rabinowitz’s 2nd Year Journey

She’s going the distance…again! Meg Rabinowitz has been training through the harsh New England winter preparing for her second Boston Marathon (and second marathon ever!), all in support of Ocean Education for our Future Blue Planet Heroes.

Meg, all decked out and lookin' gorgeous!

The MsFits wanted to know how this year’s training, regime and mentality towards the marathon has compared to last year’s:

Being my second time through the ropes, I felt really good about kicking things off this time around. Anyone who knows me can tell you that motivation and dedication are never in short supply – I’m all in when I put my heart into something. And when it comes to following the training plan and keeping up with all the miles it requires to prepare yourself for the 26.2 on the big day, I’m ready! I’m always up for a challenge, and not afraid to push myself to be my best. This year, I took it a step further and I set a goal to be better about meal planning and nutrition, hoping to feel good from the inside out about every aspect of the training process.

But, the biggest challenge of training in 2015 took me by total surprise, and was completely out of anyone’s control. Winter in New England hit us harder than anyone could have expected. Between January and March we were buried under 10 feet of Mother Nature’s winter rage – and that snow had a serious impact, both physically and mentally, on training. Practically every weekend in February we were preparing for one winter storm after another, each dropping multiple feet of snow at a time. It was disheartening to say the least, to look out on those sidewalks and streets I hoped to train on, knowing it wasn’t going to be a walk in the park. But I marched (see: ran, trudged) on, knowing some way, some how, I needed to get those miles in if I was going to get my legs ready for Marathon Monday.

And I never gave up. I strapped a headlamp on over my winter hat and ear warmers, cleats over my running shoes, and layered up with brightly colored and reflective winter running gear and I hit the road. One weekend I was plowing (see what I did there) for 12 miles in loops around Brookline through heavily falling snow. The next weekend, out and back for 14 miles on the marathon course through storm #2. And on the pattern went for weeks. It felt like it was never ending. At times I wanted to cry, I nearly did! But I knew if I could train through a snowstorm, I could run through anything to get to that finish line on Boylston Street.

Had this been my first rodeo, I may have lost all faith in my ability to get through training. But the challenge of this winter had the opposite effect on me. I feel tougher and stronger than I ever could have imagined. It helps that my boyfriend and favorite supporter is just as enthusiastic about encouraging me on my toughest days with his ever-entertaining megaphone antics as he is in eating well and feeling good. The combination of eating right, and proper rest and recovery after each of those snowy, wet and cold runs made getting out for the next, that much more possible.

And now it’s less than two weeks until the marathon and I feel more ready than ever. Having been here at this stage this time last year, I know what to expect and I have the nerves at bay. I feel confident in my training thus far, and really happy with the mileage I’ve achieved and relatively (knock on wood) injury-free season I’ve had. I almost feel that we’ve been fortunate to have had the most testing of winter trainings, because it is making all of us marathoners that much more prepared for the big day. If we can survive winter 2015, we will truly run as one strong Boston on April 20th.

I couldn’t be doing this without the support of the MsFits and everyone who has sent me those good vibes all winter. Both the moral support and donations to my marathon fund have helped me run strong over these 18 weeks of training. The miles I’ve run and money I’ve raised to benefit the outreach education programs at the New England Aquarium wouldn’t be possible without my *team* by my side. As we say on the Aquarium Marathon Team, “Go Fish!”

So proud of you Meg!

So proud of you Meg!


We love that Meg could share her story for the second year in a row and hope that whether you’re running a marathon or running through the marathon we call “life,” that you can reflect on Meg’s story and keep on running like the wind!

Please help cheer Meg on on Monday and in the meantime, you can make a donation to support Meg in her marathon efforts and read her blog here.


Ms Fit Obsession: Loquet London

What can be more exciting for spring than this new(ish) company straight from London, Loquet London? I am counting down the days until mine arrives, but in the meantime, I just had to share my love for these ‘loquets.’

There are so many things that I love about this company, but the coolest is that it was started by two girlfriends, Sheherazade Goldsmith and Laura Bailey in June 2013. Together, they have totally reimagined the concept of the age-old locket and this generation’s passion for collectible charms.

What I also love about this is that because it’s a luxury jewelry company, the lockets themselves are all 18k gold and the charms come in all different kinds of golds and stones. The gold framed crystal ‘loquet’ is designed to open and be personalized with collectable charms and birthstones. From a lucky horseshoe, a gold initial, a September sapphire or a diamond studded shooting star, each ‘loquet’ is a unique and bespoke gift, a love letter coded in charms. Can it get any lovelier than that?
