Running for all the right reasons.

Today, I start running. To train for a marathon. On February 16th, 2020. I have a long and sordid history with running. Mostly, I haven’t liked it.

Diary of a Psychological Anorexic

An essay circa 2007: Long term, I would love to be a size 2. But, perhaps my first goal right now would be to get back in my old jeans. I remember the day I fit into size 2 Gap jeans. I danced in the fitting room. I am a psychological anorexic. I don’t know […]
