Women Run the World, 2021


  This title brought to you by a successful return to racing in the form of the 2021 Women’s Mini. Due to the cancellation of the 2021 Frozen Penguin, the Mini is officially the race I’ve run the most: 2017, 2018 and 2019. More to come on 2021 later this week but in short: it […]

Jumping into June head first


but first a little rewind.. My do-nothing Sunday to close last week’s wrap ended up as a nice strength day, which made up for the fact that I literally did not leave my apartment. Haven’t had one of those days in a while but 40s and pouring rain? No thanks. The most exciting news in […]

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.

a sense of community


So glad so many were able to “join” me in the 9/11 Virtual 5K. In honor of the twentieth anniversary, the museum is remembering and celebrating the 9/12 spirit when the world came together. Throughout these last couple of years, I’ve really missed that and I’m hoping we can remember how to get back to […]

three years


ETA: Commenting is back. Live post from this week is here. Grateful for the backup, but glad to be back here. running? No, that was four in January. Three years blogging with all of you after I “met” Coco in the comments of my Cherry Blossom 10M recap. Fitting because a theme of this post […]

a weird week


A good weird week, but still a weird one. Routine was a little upside down, but you roll with it. Also, I got excited about cooking something that wasn’t salmon, which never happens. OK, I should say making, not cooking, but utterly obsessed with Deborah’s dill pickle ranch dressing. It made my baby carrots way […]
