This week involves more New York State testing which means my son goes into school late since we opt out of taking the exams. Again, why couldn’t tests be optional when I was a kid?
The later mornings mean extra sleep, more time to devote to running and Pure Barre AND out for breakfast. My son talked me into stopping for a bagel both Tuesday and Wednesday before school. Of course I had already eaten my two breakfasts but here’s what my boy enjoyed.
Remember when I said my keyboard stopped typing the letter H? Well, now it has moved on to giving up the letter S at various times. I’ve decided there’s probably peanut butter all underneath the keys on my keyboard. What else could it be?
So I was interviewed for an upcoming article on the topic of runners and amenorrhea for Outside Magazine. It hasn’t been published yet but once it is live, of course I will share the link!
There’s been lots of chatter on the topic of runners and amenorrhea lately and maybe you have been wondering why I have been pretty silent about it.
The main reason is, Tina, who has been publicly sharing her story, is my friend.
I don’t talk about my friends.
I am not comfortable discussing her health or her life publicly here on the blog, even if amenorrhea is a topic of high interest to my readers.
The only thing I will do aside from support her personally is chime in on blog posts that I come across that in any way put her down in order to defend her.
I take my friendships seriously and blog friends are no exception.
I came across an awful post last week (I can’t even bring myself to share the link) and not only was it downright mean, it was filled with so much false information about runners and amenorrhea that I am pretty sure it could be classified as fake news. It took all of my restraint to leave a comment that showed my distaste without totally losing my cool.
Anyway, I have written several posts on the topic in the past which you can find in my section dedicated to amenorrhea. This post in particular, Amenorrhea Chat, has been pretty popular lately so if you missed that one, please feel free to read it. And always, feel free to contact me directly if you have any questions on the subject. 🙂
On This Day:
The Long Island Half Marathon is always the first Sunday in May. It’s no surprise that all posts from the last four years on this day revolve around running the half.
As you already know, I won’t be running this Sunday but hopefully it will work for me next year!

Is there a race that you tend to run every year? Which is it?
How often do you clean your keyboard? Do your letters get stuck like mine?
What’s for breakfast today?
