As I was editing these photos, I was smiling at how much I’m enjoying Mazen’s company these days.

9 Miles – Done and Done!

March 12, 2015

Whew – what a morning!! After dropping Mazen off at school, I headed home to fill my camelbak and departed on my longest training run of the season.

Imagine The Possibilities

March 11, 2015

Hillary, Ellen and I just finished watching Survivor Season 20: Heroes vs. Villains. It’s at the top of many lists as the best season in Survivor history, and it is definitely at the top of mine! Seeing all returning players interact – and interact with twists and blindsides – was pretty epic. All that said, I […]
