Pay it forward.

GRAVY

  • My first novel started with a mole. Yes, a MOLE - a freckle, a birthmark, whatever you want to call it.
  • I was at the pool with my daughter getting ignored by our swim instructor when a lifeguard with a particularly ripped abdomen walked by. He stopped to flirt with one of the female lifeguards and my eyes flew directly to an adorable mole on the top can of his six-pack.
  • "How cute!" I thought (among other things). "He looks like a character in a romance novel!"
  • So I went home and started writing fiction for the first time. That was over a year ago and I still haven't been able to stop. GRAVY is the story of a suburban housewife who wants another baby, but gets a man with a mole instead.
  • GRAVY is now available on Kindle and Nook!

As a devoted runner (who is still trying to hit that 8 minute mile!), I advise you to find a running group ASAP! Ask at your local running shop, look on meetup, maybe your gym has one. I promise you it will support both your emotional and running goals! I've been with mine for almost 10 years and really feel like those folks are my pack.

Yeah, it's a definite outpouring of grief. Surprisngly running is the only form of exercise I've been able to stick to, but I think it's because I'm a fairly intense person and seems to work well for me.. and it's measurable.

If you just want to run one 8 minute mile you'll be able to get there in less than 6 weeks. If you want to be a consistent 8 minute miler and figure out a secret, let me know! ;-)

I'm with a running group and while I do pay money for my coach, track workouts, and daily emails, I know that last year that the Saturday runs were open to the public to pop in every once in awhile. I can ask my coach if that's changed. We meet 8am at Fit Right (running store) in NW PDX. The bonds (and progress) I've made since joining this group has been amazing. We have a ton of pace groups and distances covered and just started up yesterday. If you'd like any more details feel free to email me!
