Over at Another Mother Runner, I talk about the strangest thing I've seen on a run lately.
- Missing the point.
- The Communist Antipasto.
- The photos, you guys!
- We forget how far we've come.
- Relevant to the above.
- One free trick. Mine is a facility with language. If I could partner up with a Plot Genius, we would be unstoppable.
- Our culture really doesn't like new mothers.
- This is an amazing piece of writing.
"It is a self-contained city (subsidized by my taxes) for recent transplants to New York who make a billion dollars and do not ever think about money. Working up the energy to be upset about its inception is low on my list; I would much rather enjoy the utter weirdness of a real estate developer’s vision of grandeur. Every city in the world will eventually look the same and this is an inevitability I have chosen to accept. Ideally, I will be dead by then, and then, of course, I will no longer care."
-- From Megan Reynolds' piece on Hudson Yards. Stay for the last paragraph.
- This is infuriating. The first time I was prescribed an antidepressant, I was told to just quit taking it if it wasn't working out. Which was awful in all of the ways described in this story -- and I was told it couldn't be happening. In-fur-i-a-ting.
- If only I had the metabolism of a husky.
- In keeping with my Iditarod obsession. (I'm rooting for Aily Zirkle, btw. If you haven't seen her episode of Losers on Netflix, you should.)
- It's the most wonderful time of the year (a little late).
- A senstive-but-honest take on a question running is wrestling with.
- Speaking of track and field.
Over at Another Mother runner, I give winter the finger and explain what my secret project is ....
- My favorite last line didn't make the list but these are still some pretty good ones.
- Why has it taken us so long to study this? (I know the answer but still)
- In case you need it.
- I'm sure this is fine.
- We are living in the future.
- As one who works on a college campus, I am unsurprised by this.
- More on that Esquire story about Bryan Singer.
- This is the future, people. And the past.
- My new favorite artist.
Let the bon temps roulez... or something, over at Another Mother Runner.

The latest Dry Martini column is live over at Another Mother Runner. This time, I talk about fear and indoor tracks.
