    Do you know what’s not really a good idea? Determining that you have to finish a long, comprehensive post before you start writing other blog posts…and doing so when you only have short chunks of time for blog writing.

    favorite links 7/10/16 - outdoors, travel, recipes, soul food, brain food

    I know it’s cliche to use the weather as a conversation starter, but recently we’ve been getting a lot of thunderstorms. I love summer thunderstorms, though they do disrupt trail running plans. Have I mentioned before that I’m originally from Texas, and then moved to Nevada for five years? I grew up with thunderstorms and downpours, but the […]

    Favorite read of this week: a reef system in the Amazon. Also more science, outdoors, fitness, and food links.

    Let’s dispense with the small talk, because I want to start with my favorite read of this week: scientists recently discovered a huge reef system at the mouth of the Amazon River. Not only was it just discovered, it’s in an environment where reefs were previously thought to be unable to grow. You should really […]
