Summer 2018: A Highlight Reel


Life

(This is a brief re-write of a post that was destroyed in the great disc-space crash of ReadWriteRun in December 2018. It was re-written using the photo folders and notes from the original post.

Life, Reading

Hi Friends, Maybe you haven’t heard, but here in Boston we are getting absolutely pummeled by a series of Nor’Easters.

Travel Guide: Family Trip to New Hampshire


Life, Reading

Swimming for Runners


Life, Running

So, As I’ve written about previously, I was recently diagnosed with a stress fracture in my tibia. Insert sad face emoji here. My orthopedist talked me through the recovery process at our last appointment, which includes a lot of rest and listening to my body. He told me that pain is my best guide; If […]
