Fourth of July came in at No. 2 mostly because it’s also my birthday. Halloween and Easter tied for third. Thanksgiving fell somewhere between Valentine’s Day and Labor Day — in other words, I hated it. Forced to dress up, smile, and pretend to like Grandma’s “gourmet” asparagus side was a lot of fuss for little payoff ...

Fall is the perfect time to set new running goals

While most people set new goals while ringing in the new year, fall has always been my “New Year’s Day.” It’s almost as if the change in the leaves inspires a change in me. My whole life has been spent in education in one capacity or another, and fall means fresh pink erasers, crisp new folders and a brand new wardrobe. Fall, with its promise of cooler morning temperatures and new school pictures, reinvigorates the side of me that’s been lounging by the pool in the summer heat.
