TOTR: The best city I ever ran in is…

I love Tuesdays on the Run. And I love having the “cheat sheet” of the topics early so I can get these written at the weekend. This week? This best city I ever ran in is… Linking up with: Erika at MCM Mama, Marcia at Marcia’s Healthy Slice, and Patty at No Guilt Life. And […]


TOTR: If I had $1,000

I love Tuesdays on the Run. And I love having the “cheat sheet” of the topics early so I can get these written at the weekend. This week? If I had $1000 to spend on running I’d… Linking up with: Erika at MCM Mama, Marcia at Marcia’s Healthy Slice, and Patty at No Guilt Life. […]


TOTR: Running on Vacation

It’s funny, even though I’ve “met” so many fun folks via the Weekly Wrap, new linkups still give me blogger newbie nerves. I was just going to comment on Darlene’s post, but then that comment was turning into an essay and I decided to make it a post. Plus, the theme is travel: how could […]


Review: Run the World

I can’t remember when Becky Wade’s Run The World  first crossed my radar, but it made a visit to Mt. TBR prior to this reading as when I downloaded it from the library, I was 4% in. I didn’t recall any of it, so re-started and finished it this week. If I had any quality […]


Beautiful Badlands

Either Flickr’s sale or the last WordPress update broke that plugin, so photos are here. I’m nearly done with my photos, but I still have way too many. The Badlands are almost beyond description though. Driving through scenery like that… with scenery like this in your mirrors. It’s just surreal. This was one of my […]


Days 1-3: Denver to Deadwood and Dead Men

I heard a lot of Montana ads while away and while I don’t remember it verbatim it was something about memories on the price of gas. Well that also fits this nearly 1,600 mile road trip. Total gas expenditures? $103.10. I’m not an organized enough driver to have also tracked the gallons that made for, […]


Review: Prisoners of Geography

Has been a while since I reviewed a book in a more in-depth fashion than on my Goodreads, but this one is really resonant. It was also bought on my first venture to the new Amazon Books store at the Time Warner Center. While I don’t love everything about the store and don’t frequently buy […]


2016 in places

an actual travel post on what used to be a travel blog? A Festivus miracle. I began 2016 in Florida, for Billy Joel in Fort Lauderdale and will return to Florida late on New Years’ Day 2017. I was also there once in between to finally visit the Space Coast and the wonderful and historic […]


50 before 50

Have I seriously never posted about the 50 before 50 aka visit all fifty states before I turn 50 challenge? Maybe because as of last year, I didn’t think it was going to happen: But 2015 has been very good for my progress: With this past week’s trip to New Mexico, Arizona and Colorado (amazing! […]


2014 revisits 2004

while looking for something else on my ancient LiveJournal, I found this “travel itinerary” from August 18, 2004. Nearly ten years on, time to revisit it. Walk El Camino de Santiago in Spain. Still on the list, although I’m not as passionate about doing it as I once was. It’s now more of a curiosity […]
