On learning to love the pool
At first, swimming was just that thing I had do so I could make it through the triathlon. Last year, though, I found myself loving open water swimming . But the pool was still the pool, and up until recently I equated lap swimming to running on the treadmil...

The weather is finally warming up... and this is why I'm a little bummed about it
I know I'll get some backlash for this one. I haven't been quiet about my hatred toward this winter.   Exhibit 1 .  Exhibit 2 . It has been dark, depressing, terrible and COLD. This weekend it'll be a tropical 40 degrees, with nature's free car wash patteri...

Two things come to mind while moving

In defense of Candy Crush Saga
Level 254. I'm stuck.  There's a communal thing going on in social network land that's been around for awhile, and not going on anytime soon: A minor addiction called Candy Crush Saga. I normally resist the Facebook crazes. I refused to change my profile pi...

5 in 1 blog: On Rochester, Lizzie Dog, the YMCA, the iPhone 5S and turning 30
Life has gotten a little crazy lately. I've been splitting my time between Albany and Rochester. My Albany days are consumed by the drive, hitting the road before dawn, spending the night, then coming back around 9 or 10 p.m. the next day. On the road I've ...
