My First Marathon

In 2001, I ran my first marathon. I had attempted a marathon a few years before, but shortly after I announced my plans to everyone I knew, I got injured and had to stop running. I didn’t realize at the time that no one but me cared that I had failed to reach my goal. […]

If I had a million dollars…

If I had a million dollars, I would encourage Dan to invest and save about half of it any way he wanted because that would make him happy.  I don’t totally understand his fascination with interest rates and mutual funds but I respect it and I’m sure I will be grateful for it when we […]

Traveling with my Toddler: Heaven is Having My Lap to Myself

This holiday season an amazing thing happened. I enjoyed air travel with my toddler. I even read a few chapters of my book on the plane. See, I used to love planes. I loved everything about air travel. I liked to buy a magazine, a processed snack and a $4 bottle of water at the […]

I hit a turning point in my life when….

A little maroon bike changed my life. I bought it exactly ten years ago, with my tax return and a little help from my parents. I enjoyed spin classes, I was injured from running and planning to do a triathlon someday, and I longed to be able to exercise outside the four stifling walls of […]

I Love the Gas Card Scene But That’s Not Why Reality Bites is my Favorite Movie

My favorite movie of all time would have to be Reality Bites. Not because Ethan Hawke is so sexy (although he is) and not because Winona Ryder is so beautiful and gosh darn likeable (which she most certainly is) or even because of the scene where she and Janean Garofalo dance to “My Sharona.” (while […]
