About This Project (and me)

I’m a mediocre middle-aged runner. I started running seriously around the time I turned 40, inspired by the birth of my second My Facechild to give up smoking for good and desperate for something else to take its place.

Running evolved from being something I did to settle my mind or improve my health into being something that challenged the ways I thought about almost everything–from the city I lived in to my own body. The writing I do on this site is simply a way of trying to understand what running means.

For fuller accounting of why I started this project and what I hope to achieve with it, check out my first newsletter post about it.

You can follow me on Strava, if you like.
