It’s that time again! When nerds across Massachusetts travel many miles in blistering August heat in heavy, uncomfortable cosplay to attend that Mecca of geek shopping and celebrity photo ops: Boston Comic Con. My schedule only permitted me to attend BCC on Saturday and Sunday this year; I usually go Fridays and Sundays because Saturdays are insaaaaaane. This year … More Boston Comic Con 2016
I always get chills when I get to the bit about the runners who ran those extra two miles. Some shit’s going down tonight, I don’t even know, they were detonating backpacks while I went through Copley I guess and there’s someone in custody and honestly I just would wish people stop trying to blow … More #bostonstrong
Yesterday I drove down to Cohasset, MA to run the Cohasset Road Race by the Sea, a pretty 10K (6.2 miles) along the coastline of Massachusetts. It was a glorious, perfect blue day. And…. well. This was my first-ever 10K race and I will just say I did horribly. I went out too fast, I … More race report: Cohasset Road Race by the Sea!
Distance: 4 miles Accidentally ran up Heartbreak Hill today because FUNSIES. I mean, actually, I accidentally ran down it, and then I had to go up to get back home again.

I figured this out because the runners training … More long run report: 2/15/14
In case you were wondering, this is what a super-tough runner looks like when it’s cold as balls and she’s getting ready to run a 5K. This was last weekend, at the beginning of the Jingle Bell 5K in Somerville, MA. I ran a decent race, especially considering that this course had MOUNTAINS (ok, hills). … More jingle bell 5K
So I understand people like to give away money at the end of the year, whether for tax purposes or because they get influenced by the Giving Season, or maybe just because they’re nice. If you are one of those people and you’re looking for a place to send some of your hard-earned dollars, may … More the animals need your help
Spent some time today going through and deleting old blog post drafts—posts that, frankly, we are all lucky I stopped writing. I really do try to save us all from the dull inanities of my life. (But Grace, I hear you say, all you do on this blog is write about dull inanities. Right, so … More coming soon: Gracetopia, 2014 ed.
