a sliver of good news


that has nothing to do with running, although running was pretty good this week too! Museums and cultural institutions can open in NYC starting on August 24. 25% occupancy. Timed ticketing required. Pre-set staggered entry. Face coverings enforced and controlled traffic flow. — Andrew Cuomo (@NYGovCuomo) August 14, 2020 I also don’t generally quote politicians […]

Adulting in the time of COVID19


some of this was scrapped from last week. Things I’m proud of so far, quite random and in no particular order and definitely about a 0.5 on a 0-10 of Covid19 preparedness: my apartment is finally settling in, only 7.5 years later I’m washing dishes daily and not eating out of tupperware except when it’s […]

Celebrating two years of running with a book giveaway


I’m weird. This is not news to those of you who know me. I can be one of those people who needs to start a book series at book 1, or I can be a total free spirit-often in the same sentence. My inner wild child came out on Tuesday when I decided to celebrate […]

2019 planning, and a new Garmin


My new Garmin came on Wednesday! I didn’t get to take it home and play with it until Thursday night. All the notifications! I turned them off nearly immediately, so pardon my continued lack of response to texts while running. 🙂 I haven’t figured out friends yet or anything, but happy to add anyone. *** […]

Galloping into October


I feel like it should be a different title since the race from which it takes its name won’t even make it into this Wrap due to weekend travel, but it’s perfect. I’m in a couple of places about this 10K, which I signed up for even when I was feeling meh about the ten […]

Crazy week! Week of 9.16


This is one of those weeks that turned into the reason why I was historically very good at gym reimbursement for the first half of the year but until I started running I never did a year of visits. It just gets too busy. This week ended up less than ideal, but I’m proud of […]

Running without music and Run to Lose, week of 9.9


My TomTom has been having sporadic GPS issues of late that seem to be getting worse. The battery isn’t lasting as long as it used to either. It owes me nothing, it’s a hand me down that I’ve had for a year and a half, and its previous owner had it about a year. It’s […]

Weekly Wrap, Week of 9.2


A short week, but why did summer have to join the long weekend party? I am 100% over the heat & humidity and will not regret that come February. It’s just been miserable. I had a realization on Friday though that the struggles the last two weeks have been 10% food choices and 90% heat, […]

London Calling, weeks of 8.12, 8.19


So London was meant to be part of an organized runcation, but that didn’t get the minimum number of people to go forward. By the time it was cancelled I already had the time off work and the itch to go to London for the first time in 17 years-not counting a layover 11 years […]
