The Fairest Week In Review: 2/13

Longtime readers of this blog know that there was a time when I abhorred running outside, clinging to the blessed safety and climate-control of the treadmill. Eventually I conceded that running outside was probably good practice for, y’know, races, which tend to be – wait for it – outside, but winter was definitely spent in the gym. And then, THE UNSPEAKABLE. My gym closed. I transitioned to running outside 90% of the time… and I didn’t hate it. Then I came to rather like it. Now I consider it my norm. That being said: you can take the girl off...

The Fairest Week In Review: 5/16

HELLO! I’m coming off an AMAZING weekend. Moon – remember Moon? – she got married! In the same place Will Smith got married if that helps you envision it! She had the most gorgeous dress and a lovely ceremony and good food and awesome people and a great after-party and I got cake and champagne and made a joint toast with my co-maid o’ honor Elizabeth and everything was magnificent. I still got my runs in for the week, though! I can prove it: Sunday | ran 10.27 miles outside in 1:45 Monday | walked 2.41 miles outside in 40 minutes;...

The Fairest Week In Review: 11/17

JENN: All right! So, I understand no running has occurred but you have an exciting reason? MOON: Well, running occurred before Tuesday, but on Tuesday… Well, it’s not that exciting, really. I just fell on the street. JENN: Oh no! Are you okay?! MOON: The fall was pretty nasty. Phone, keys went flying (although I kept my shoes) My hip got pretty smashed. I still can’t lift my leg. I’ve discovered this past week that you kind of need your hip for most things. Official FROA injury mascot. JENN: Yeah, it’s helpful… Have you been checked out?! MOON: So,...

The Fairest Week In Review: 4/22

Just me for the week in review this time around – Moon and I were at a wedding for much of the weekend and then there was Easter and basically we just haven’t had time to chat. Well. We had time to chat. But it was about other things. Sample conversation topic: This vineyard makes great Malbec! Here’s a general wedding anecdote you might enjoy: several years ago I informed my dad, in a purely hypothetical manner, that if I ever married I would want to elope because I don’t want people to stare at me for hours on...
