Review: Daniel Silva The Cellist


oh look, my annual book review and continuing the Daniel Silva tradition. Sadly it’s the second year in a row where the book release did not include listening to Silva speak in person as the book tour remained virtual. I’d hoped to be able to join one of the online events, but my schedule never […]

sunscreen and bug spray


This was a wonderfully crazy week. Also a reminder that I need to stick with morning exercise as social life goes back to “normal”. But before I get to the run down, a little bit of a race recap that isn’t worth a standalone post Race Recap: Friday afternoon I had my appointment for bib […]

um, who stole May?


or really who stole 2021? This year is absolutely flying by. Not complaining, I’m just not sure how it is Memorial Day Weekend already. Of course the weather to end the weekend also brought back this theme from early May last year. Give me unseasonably cold over last weekend’s unseasonably hot any day. Weekly Run […]

re-integrating running into life, #20BooksOfSummer


that title sounds so dramatic, which it isn’t meant to be, but not sure how else to phrase it. As we move back toward normalcy, whatever that means, post covid-19, the weekend of May 15-16 was my first chance to look at how to integrate my covid running routine with “real life”. I knew that […]

#GoTheDist, August 2018


Weird week. The heat was a lot of it. As much as I enjoy being active and found myself missing running, it was easy to not because it was just so hot. Think that was why eating was off – but tracked. Also, two really late nights (i.e. get home, go to sleep) wore me […]

Review: Daniel Silva’s The Other Woman


How did I spend Prime Day? Feeling like a rock star because somehow book signings have become a place that require wristbands. Epitome of nerd cool. Because I knew I had a long train ride to and fromĀ  our staff outing on Wednesday, I made the decision not to get Allon for my Kindle and […]

Review: Alyssa Mastromonaco’s Who Thought This Was a Good Idea?


I don’t consider myself a political person, in fact I generally don’t enjoy discussing politics. Somehow, this has translated into reading three political books this year with one more on #20BooksOfSummer. That said, if you’re looking for a discussion of the 2016 election cycle, or an in-depth look at the Obama presidency, this book isn’t […]

Training and Recovery, Week of 6.24 and #GoTheDist mid-year


You know those runs that are just absolute perfection in every way? That happened on Wednesday. This was an interesting week, running wise. The original plan earlier in June was to take this week off as I had a feeling I’d be slightly burned out from all of the June races. In some ways, being […]

Review: Scott Jurek’s Eat & Run and #20BooksOfSummer


I’ve succumbed to #20BooksOfSummer, more on that later, and the first is Scott Jurek’s Eat & Run which Liz posted to me after she read it. Is there any better kind of friend than the fellow bookworm? Never say never and all that, but there are two things in life I probably will never do: […]
