It’s your birthday, and all eyes are on you! You are special. When you’re in the room, literally and figuratively, you absolutely light it up.

Farewell Tour of Portland

A few weeks ago we began a long goodbye for Caitlin. My bestie. My roomie. My heterosexual life partner. I say long because after living here for 4 years, we had quite the list of things to do, places to go, people to see before she could leave. It was a bit of a farewell…

Confessions of a Runner: Running Sucks

Ok that’s a little bit of an exaggeration, but right now that statement is true for me. It’s springtime here in Portland. Which means some days of torrential rain and wind, and some days of 65 and sunny. Sometimes it swings from one to the other in a matter of hours! That means running season…

Purge, detox, cleanse, sparkle.

To some of us, the eclipse a few weeks ago was a moment of slight darkness and insane traffic on an average Monday. To some, it was a magical celestial moment that we organized our day, even our summer vacations, around. To others, it signaled a time of reset and reflection. I saw my favorite massage…

New PR: Best run streak of my life!

I PR’ed last week. No, I didn’t win a race. Or run the fastest mile. Or run a marathon. But I ran 35 miles last week! Since leaving for North Carolina in June, my distance has taken a hit. The heat and the humidity of summer in the South interrupted the increase in distance for…
