How Being Sick Made Me a Better Runner

I recently started a running blog for women. My last race post left on a note of positivity. I had just finished a 10k at the Berkeley Half Marathon, and had plans to begin a run streak lasting until infinity. ...more

4 Life Lessons I Learned from My Boyfriend’s Cat

House cats have got life figured out. They have it downright made. All they have to do is look cute with their furry faces and their cute paws and I will do all kinds of things for them. My boyfriend's cat, Bob, is certainly not an exception. He has it made. He meows, I fawn over him. He meows, he gets pets. He meows, he gets fed. He has the life.

Merchants and Marauders

I love board games. If you spend time with me, either in real life or online, it won't be too long until I bring up a game. Recently, I gifted my boyfriend the game Merchants and Marauders by Z-Man Games. I will refer to this game as M&M from here on out. M&M is an enthralling board game with a pirate theme.
