It's been a great week back in my routine -- I'm not sick, I'm not in New York City, and I'm not on a school break. It was a pretty tough-love week back at school, but I pulled through for a great day on Friday, and I'm having an easy Saturday ... Read more

Miles told me the other day, "Just in case there was any doubt, you're totally a runner now." I kinda' tilted my head at him and said, "I didn't doubt it, but what makes you say that?" "I just wanted to make sure you know it, that's al... Read more
