Tweet It’s been a tough year for weight maintenance over here. I’ve gained back a fair amount of the weight I lost two years ago, and it’s a bummer. Mostly because my pants don’t fit anymore, and I like the pants I have. I’m not ready to dive back into race training – partly because

One of the entrances to the Dupont station is entirely closed for escalator work. The system is kind of a disaster. But three years ago, it was in slightly

Tweet I had an entirely different post planned for today. I’m putting it off until Thursday because I realized I had something that I just absolutely had to say. I try never, ever to be a whiner on social media. I mean, I try in real life as well, but I succeed less often. Plus,
