Writing. Speaking. Reading. Running. (Late summer 2017 edition)

  Writing You might have seen my essay on Bell’s Palsy on Longreads. If you sat and read all 4k+ words of it, thank you. I know it’s hard to sit at a screen and read anything longer than a tweet or twenty million (or maybe I’m the only one with a Twitter problem?). If you didn’t […]

Prairie Dog 10k Race Report

When I found out I was pregnant with Sweet Pea in June 2011, my first thought was “Yay!” My second thought was, “Shit, this is not going to be the summer I break 47 minutes in the 10k.” I was right. I spent that summer being bloated and nauseated as a little human began to […]

Race Report: 2016 Longmont Outdoor Divas Sprint Triathlon

Overheard at the Outdoor Divas Sprint Triathlon this Sunday… I found the best kombucha bar in the Highlands. Putting on a wetsuit is like putting on a wedding dress. You’re like “Please, zip! Please, zip!” All she ate was sandwiches and mac and cheese, for, like, every meal.   I can’t help noticing these things, I’m a chronic […]

Race Report: Yeti Chase 5k

I signed up for a three-race series this fall. I figured this was a great way to stay motivated, save a little money, and avoid the aggravation of choosing all of the exact right races. I should have known this was a guarantee that the universe would thwart my oh-so carefully laid plans. Sure enough, I found […]

Race Report: Monster Dash 5k

Last weekend Dan and I ran the Louisville Monster Dash 5K. I was nervous and excited to see where my fitness was, as this was my first race since Lady Bug was born in June. Dan and I spent more time trash talking each other in advance of this race than we actually spent running […]

Race Report: Aetna Park to Park 10 Miler 2013

If your idea of the perfect late summer morning is running ten meandering miles through the parks and tree lined neighborhoods of Denver, empty of cars, devoid of off-leash dogs, in the company of hundreds of other runners, then we should be best friends. Or running partners at the very least. Because I can think […]

Race Report: Arnold Mills Four Miler

I put this race on my calendar because… well, why not run a race at sea level? The Arnold Mills Four Miler takes place in the small town of Cumberland, Rhode Island every fourth of July. It’s simple, it’s well run, and it’s close enough to my parents’ house, where I was visiting. I ran […]

Race Report: Urban 10 Miler

I was at a party the night before this race and I met some women who told me they got into running recently because bike racing was starting to be too much pressure. So we got to chatting and I mentioned I had this race the next day and they were asking me about the […]

Race Report: Superior Stocking Run 5k

Saturday Dan and I ran a local 5k. This was the third time I’ve attempted to beat him in a 5k (first in 2009, and again in 2010). I guess three times is a charm. Spoiler alert: I did it! I finally beat him! If you know me at all or if you’ve visited my […]

Race Report: Santa Barbara International Half Marathon

Race morning began at about 3:30am, I’m not sure because I don’t tell time or do much of anything that good before sunrise. See, before we changed the clocks, Sweet Pea was getting up at about 5:45. Someone up there must have been laughing at me when I complained about how ridiculous that was, because […]
