Why is it 38 Degrees in May?

Tuesday, May 19th, 2009 · No Comments

OK, so here we are the week before Memorial Day — the unofficial start to summer, albeit a week early this year — and it’s a chilly 38 freakin’ degrees. WTF? It’s 52 in my house this morning, which is colder than we set our heater at night in the winter (55). At least it’s […]

58-Mile Week, Happy Hour, Horses, and Bowling

Sunday, May 17th, 2009 · No Comments

From my Facebook status update that I posted a little while ago: when did I reach a point in my life when running 16 miles could be preceded by the word(s) “only” or “cutting it short?” And that concludes a 58-mile week. Time for Star Trek IMAX tonight It was a beautiful morning and parts […]

Day of Non-Stop Action

Wednesday, May 13th, 2009 · No Comments

Today has been the longest, most action-packed day I can remember in a long time, so I feel the need to blog about it. Here’s a quick recap of everything I’ve done so far today: Woke up at 5am Ran 14 miles (in about 2 hours @ ~8:30/mile training pace) Discovered a great new country […]

Birthday Blog Post

Thursday, April 2nd, 2009 · No Comments

Today is my 32nd birthday. I’m writing that down so I don’t forget (as I hear tends to happen with age). However, I officially stopped counting after 30, and have actually caught myself forgetting how old I am sometimes (or at least not thinking about it as much as I used to). Of course, I […]

Is it March Already?

Monday, March 2nd, 2009 · 2 Comments

March 2, 2009. Woah. And the last blog entry I wrote here was February 7. OK, I’ve officially been slacking on the Blog Master G front. Too many online presences, too little time. Life online was much easier when I only had a single blog to maintain. Now I have everything from my Facebook profile […]

Time of Year For Reflecting

Friday, December 26th, 2008 · No Comments

This moving piece was written by my late step-grandfather, Alan Pritchard (Nana’s second husband for as long as either of them was in my life), and was originally published 30 years ago today in The Sacramento Bee, the daily for which he was editor and columnist. Merry Christmas, one and all, and enjoy this excellent […]

Buh-Bye, Summer 2008

Saturday, September 6th, 2008 · 2 Comments

Summers are crazy here in Saratoga Springs — they zoom by in a blink and everyone’s usually incredibly busy. We’re on the go so much we can barely stop to assess what just happened — let alone blog about it. But now that fall’s here, I’ll try to be better about blogging. 🙂 We got […]

Happy 08.08.08!

Friday, August 8th, 2008 · 2 Comments

I clearly remember 20 years ago today — 08.08.88 — when my Mom, Nana, and Bro were on an East Coast tour (having grown up in California, of course, this was a big deal for an 11-year-old). I believe we were visiting my East Coast family (grandparents, uncle, aunt, cousin). On this day 20 years […]

Has another year already gone by? A big happy 28th birthday to my little bro, Pete! The past year in brotherdom has brought a myriad of unforgettable times — Dad’s birthday / family reunion in October; my February visit to California; my marathon weekend, which included seeing a Giants game with Pete and Dad; and […]

My 31st Birthday Party / Wine Club #6

Monday, April 14th, 2008 · 1 Comment

Though my 30th birthday party set the party bar pretty high, this year was also pretty freakin’ awesome. Jen masterminded yet another great event — the Wine Snob Smackdown ’08 — this time pairing 7 wines with 7 cheeses and challenging party-goers to a blind taste test. Rather than asking everyone to bring the usual […]
