Back on Boylston via @laurenfleshman
I’m back. Like a zillion other people who were here when the shit hit the fan last year, I’m here, in Boston. We all make conversation. We try to decipher how our experience lines up with the person whom we just asked, “how does it fee...[Read on]
The Boulder Budged via @laurenfleshman & @Oiselle
Ever since Jude was born in June, I’ve been working toward becoming an elite athlete again, but it has been very difficult to find momentum. Little things keep getting in the way of progress. Breastfeeding zapped my energy. The sleep deprivation slo...[Read on]
Sydney Report (part 1) via @laurenfleshman
My iPhone was dead. No moments were captured in my first 5k back on the track, except in my mind. My computer is also dead. Only the iPad remains (see I did need all three on this trip, Jesse). No writing of significant length will be done on this.&n...[Read on]

In Reply to, “Ok, You’re a Runner. Get Over It” via @laurenfleshman

Keeping it Real via @laurenfleshman
I’m not exactly the hugest Lady Gaga fan-girl, but earlier this week, she did something pretty cool. After her cover photo from “Glamour” was released, she made a public statement that the image of her was unrealistic and that she doesn&...[Read on]
Athletic Assessment via @Laurenfleshman
Anyone can dream. Are you committed? Anyone can train hard. Do you have the discipline to recover? Anyone can follow a diet. Can you make exceptions and remain confident? Anyone can react to a move. Can you be the one that makes it? Anyone can show go...[Read on]
