Once Around the World: The Plan
13 years ago, I started a love affair with running.  In the interest of accuracy, I didn’t really love it at first. But I was getting worse, every year, at all of the sports that I did love and running seemed like something I could get better at for a while...

I'll Try Again: Pacific Rim One Day 2015
At some point, everything is a duck in a tree.  I made another attempt at 100 miles in under 24 hours, at Pacific Rim One Day on Saturday March 21, 2015.  I failed.  I'm really fine with that word, failing.  I have an unfinished play that I started writing,...
