Don't hate on the Easter Bunny!

Yes, it's Easter and that means the Easter bunny (and every candy bowl at work) will be bringing you plenty of chocolate and candy to tempt even the strongest among us.  But don’t worry, he’s coming to help.

Resolution Time

The New Year always brings a renewed sense of commitment, of plans, goals, changes.  As I ran New Year’s morning, I was reminded again of this very important ritual we all seem to do.  I ran a beautiful – albeit frigid – 12 mile run.  The sun was out, but there was no warmth to be had.

Run Defensively



Moments before, I had been happily driving with my girlfriend – we were on our way to be inducted into a national honor fraternity ceremony at our college.  She sat on the passenger side putting on her last touches of make up.  I was driving, and I watched a man coming toward me with his blinker on.  I looked in disbelief, he was so close to me, there was no way he could make the turn.  And besides, I had the right of way. 

That was my last thought.  I have the right of way.

Autumn Runs

I really never tire of the fall foliage.  Here in Massachusetts, the leaves are just starting to change. And they are spectacular.  Really.

Go Ahead and Fail



Maybe that sounds a bit like a threat, or sarcastic…  But I promise it is not. 

I am the queen of failure.  Meaning, I have tried and not succeeded at more than I really would like to think about – or admit.

But the big question we all face is not whether or how often we fail, but how often we get up and try again.
