I left on my usual lunch break walk Monday afternoon planning on crafting a lame excuse for a small break. It would go something like this: “Hey guys, sorry work/life has been hectic.

“A cut, color and a…perm,” I wretched out that last word through almost-clenched teeth a week before I flew out to New York. A part of me internally wept at the cost involved in getting my hair to look somewhat presentable, and the other side heaved a sigh pregnant with relief. After a move that […]

While reading “The Secret Race” this past winter, Josh jokingly emailed me, claiming that Tyler Hamilton and I were essentially the same person. The claim was followed by copied sections of Hamilton’s book, in which he described his constant battle to lose weight. I haven’t tried the seltzer water and sleeping pill combination, but I […]
