I have a simple, humble request that I am sending out into the ether, hoping it reaches its destination. It’s a wild hope that I have no control over, just a pleading from my heart.

Dear Hollywood,

Please, never ever never ever remake the 1985 Clue. It is absolutely perf...

I’ve lived in New Orleans for more than six months now, and to say that life is different is an understatement. I have learned to peel crawfish and debone fish. I have deciphered a new dialect (NOT like the TV shows, people!), and taken the streetcar multiple times bec...

When that alarm did go off, I woke up not rested but not quite tired either. I stumbled back into the kitchen and looked at my cake.

Well, it was too late to back out now. And I don’t think that I could get a cake from Winn-Dixie, draw a turtle on it and try to pass it...

There is an old saying that I recite to myself once in a while.

“When you fail, do not despair. Move forward and try a larger and more complicated version of that same thing, with minimal planning and less time to finish. Revealing the new thing in a public forum also h...

The most important part of returning to running after an injury is to start slowly. Focus on cross training and don’t increase mileage by more than 10% from week to week. That is the plan. I will focus on that and - what hold up is that a race?!?!

Yes, yes it is. Specif...

Happy Pre-Thanksgiving! This Thanksgiving is particularly special for me because last week, Jesse and I FINALLY were able to do something that we have wanted to do for a long time. 

Not a just a road trip . . . we moved!

After 7 and a half years in New York, we took the...

Things to pay attention to while running:

  1. Cars

  2. Pedestrians

  3. Other runners

  4. Proper running form

  5. Proper breathing

  6. That little niggle in your right shin that has been getting worse over the past few weeks

I got 5/6, which is an 83%. At my grade...

While I was wallowing in a land without contacts, I was not idle in my misery. Oh no, I decided to eat a lot.

For me, writing is never just one way. It can be excruciating or energizing. I can collapse into a nap, or be ready for a night out.

What is always horrible, tho...

And I should have – I was down to my last pair, and I knew it was going to be a busy few weeks. But, I still didn’t think about it.

Yes, ladies and gentleman, I ran out of contacts. And it stopped my running for about three weeks.

The actual reason why I ran out of conta...

June 10, 2017

This week has been less about the running and more about the thinking that I really should get out and run. Life has been interfering again and it kept me in bed more mornings than last week. Guilt was present, but so was sleep.

I did get out Wednesday for Global Runnin...
