    Here’s to the Crazy Ones (and Why Facebook Rules)

    In a month, I am going to attempt something that boggles the minds of most people. When I tell them about it, they say “You are going to do what?” I repeat it. And like clockwork, almost everyone responds: “That’s crazy.” In a month, I’m going to run 100 miles through the valleys, mountains, creeks…

  • This is Not the End, But the Beginning

    Sunday April 15th was a special day. Not because it was Tax Day (we did get a 2 day reprieve thank goodness). It was special because it was the day of the More Magazine/Fitness Magazine Women’s Half Marathon and it was the birthday of female heroes. I’m happy to say that all of the women…

    Clothes, Fast and Slow

    A while ago I went on a few dates with a retired professional baseball player. I met him while I was soaking my legs in an icy river after a long run. There were a couple of young guys near me, fishing in a half-hearted way, and we started chatting. Turns out they were rookie-league…

    Girls on the Run Style

    Alright, let’s face it. There are as many variations in style, intention and motivation as there are people who do it.  And yes… I’ll admit my motivation for running has changed over the years. Some years I ran to maintain my health. Other years it was a sneaky attempt to meet guys. Then of course,…

    Horses and Dogs and Sports, Oh My!

    When you participate in a niche sport, you can expect to unearth a small cadre of hardcore participants. Because more is sometimes better, especially when it comes to competition, and because enthusiasm likes to spread, people involved in fringier endeavors tend to proselytize, to seek to bring new members into their fold. Unlike with professional…

My delight at receiving this improbable honor and being included among such amazing women is only surpassed by my excitement for training women from my Upper East Side New York store to participate in the More+Fitness Women’s Half Marathon this April.  I could…

    Early Morning Runs

    I am SO a morning person. One day last week, while driving my children to a doctor’s appointment I had conveniently (for me anyway) scheduled at 7:45 a.m., my son commented out of the blue, half-dozing, half awake. “I just don’t know why you do that.” Hank is in tenth grade. “I just don’t know…

    The Ultimate Gut Check

    I wonder how many race decision are made under the influence of alcohol. I was already three kir royals deep, celebrating Devon’s epic finish at the Olympic Trials in Houston, when conversation turned my direction. “So are you doing San Diego?” I am sitting with Devon Crosby Helms, Larissa Polischuk, Nathan Yanko, Brett Rivers, Georgia Young, and…
