freiburg

In the middle of October, the weekend before the Frankfurt Marathon, I went to Freiburg with Mandie and a couple of her grad school friends. The first day was warm fall perfection: no jacket, sunshine, blue-skied beautiful. The second day rained with a fury so powerful it was not worth...Read more

frankfurt marathon

  Just over a week ago, on Sunday, October 27th, I ran the Frankfurt Marathon, which was actually awesome! I had a pretty solid plan in place (run a mile, walk a minute) which I’d used in training and which meant that my knees felt good the whole way through unlike...Read more

From a morning bike ride when I was in the US for my brother’s wedding: The Wildwood, New Jersey boardwalk has the best signs (with a sneaky guest appearance from a Stone Harbor hotel).Read more

sardinia V: costa smeralda

sardinia V: costa smeralda

The Costa Smeralda has some of the most stunning coastline I saw in Sardinia, but it’s definitely a world of weird. An expensive world of weird. I’m a total convert to paying for loungers and umbrellas on the beach (after having tried it for the first time in Positano), but...Read more
