10 Jun BONK.

The Bonk! Yes. How could I have forgotten??? Saturday morning practice was good, but hard - and I googled around afterwards to find out what my problem was. And I found out - I bonked. Something I'd completely forgotten about since the last time I trained. Basically,...

They're amazing. Hit my 1st practice this morning - 8:30a: a warm, overcast morning in Central Park - perfect running weather. And the coaches, mentors, staff: all super-nice, supportive, encouraging and kind. Not only did they lead us through a terrific practice (warm-up jog, group exercises...

19 Jan A New Year.

Okay, seems the universe is trying to tell me something - Heard an amazing story this morning. Our print rep who does our brochures was here from Montreal today and stopped in to see us. As we were wrapping up, he said that he wasn't supposed...

27 Aug Only the Branches, Never the Roots

So there I was: bracing my tomatoes for Hurricapocalypse - massing them together, fencing them in, tying down all the exposed, fragile new upper growth to whatever is (hopefully) unlikely to be moved by the impending Irene-o-fonic tempest, and a thought crossed my mind. It...
