New (Bike) Day

Apparently "New Bike Day" is a thing in the cycling world, and I got to celebrate it last week.I never thought I could feel drawn to any other pursuit in the same way that I've always felt drawn to running.

Changing Plans

Sometimes when you think life is done throwing you curveballs for a while, the biggest one is yet to come. Please forgive my subsequent melodramatic musings. They're certainly not intended to be written with an air of self-pity and I hope they don't come across that way, but I'm a verbal processor and to write things out makes them make more sense sometimes. More importantly, I know that I have learned a lot from other people by listening to or reading about their struggles and setbacks when…See More
