  • September 23, 2016 Pajama Party

    On Wednesday, I ran two miles in my pajamas. Sometimes you just have to get out the door immediately, or you know a run won't happen at all. At least my jammies are comfy. Plus, it gave me a feel-good...

  • September 14, 2016 Thank you, humans who say hello.

    Living in a more friendly, relaxed town means that many people wave, nod, or even vocalize a hello or a good morning when they pass you. It doesn't really matter if you're running, walking, or biking....

  • July 17, 2015 slogan

    On my long run last Sunday I ran a portion of my race route. I have to admit, the hills were vicious...but the downhill was so delicious. I'm sure that's on a t-shirt somewhere. Anyway, I'm still not ...
