06 Dec Honor Student

Door opened, opportunity arrived!

06 Nov And then there was Dog.

Coraline. Lucy the Cat left us on August the 20th, 2013. Both John and I were lost. She took pieces of us that we didn't even know we had. We wandered a bit through the next few weeks, and on September the 8th we found ourselves in...

23 Oct The Pack

It was a beautiful night in Central Park last night. Clear, dark skies, cool air and the run felt joyful, fun. We ran the first part as a pack, laughing and chattering. Our assignment was easy - a four mile loop between 72nd and 102nd...

10 Oct And Teaming.

Back to practice tonight, after a day of recording at audible. It was our Wednesday 'quality' workout, and the last big push before we start tapering next week. Which means? Hill repeats. Ohhhhh yeah. Us vs. the cat. I've been really, really tired recently; the stress...

09 Oct Teeming.

Here's what I love about the farmer's market: it's *alive*. Hugely and vibrantly *alive*. The Union Square farmer's market is one of my favorite things in New York, and I often pass through on my way home from Saturday morning practice. At this time of year...
