Running and Reading

If you follow me on twitter, you already know I was a happy little clam at Linda Fairstein’s book signing. I’d say meeting, but this is at least the fifth year I’ve gone, according to her inscription on Terminal City. They’re usually summer releases so this was a nice treat. As I was browsing the […]


#UnitedNYCHalf Recovery Week

I knew this was going to be a light week even without recovery from the half. We have our Global Summit/Annual Meeting and there’s just a lot going on. While I do chase steps in general, as Judy and I discussed on her post, I’ve learned through this injury cycle to take some true rest […]

I was surprisingly chill about this race. I think it was mostly because I knew I wasn’t going to be properly trained back in January and I decided this was going to be a fun run. Why not defer? Probably because a no pressure race appealed to me, and I wanted to enjoy it with […]

Tuesday Topics: Running Wishlist

I’m history! No, I’m mythology! Nah, I don’t care what I am. I’m free-hee! ~Genie Celebrity** deaths don’t generally affect me too much. Usually by the end of the news cycle, their death has slipped my mind.  That wasn’t true for Robin Williams who has remained unique in that respect-and I suspect he may be […]


Physical Therapy Week 3

This was the first running week that felt normal-ish since injury. Baby steps forward. Before I get to this week, I had a very pleasant surprise in my inbox Friday morning: I’ve been selected a Skirt Sports Ambassador! Did not see that coming at all as my social media activity is typically way too low […]
