My 2019 A Race for the Ages multi-day ultramarathon race report is published in Ultrarunning World 

I was invited by 247Running to write my running story. I hope my story inspires you.

No Matter What Setback or Suffering Comes My Way, I Work with It and Just Run

I was recently interviewed by Kimberley Payne from Koinonia about my writing life.

I'm thrilled to have my story "Running in Sickness and in Health" published in Chicken Soup for the Soul - Running for Good. The book is co-authored by Dean Karnazes.  Read my story here.

Honored to be an interviewer and a contributor to the 6th edition of How To Survive Your Freshman Year. I interviewed many college students and graduates about their college experience and advise they have for incoming freshman. I also contributed an essay - How to Survive Freshman English. 

I am happy to announce that my most recent peer-reviewed scholarly article, The Ascetic Life of the Ultrarunner, is published in the fall 2018 issue of Spiritus: A Journal of Christian Spirituality. To access it, click here.

 

 

I was already a published author before I ventured into blogging. My entry into the blogging world was a pleasant "accident." It started after a chance encounter with Arianna Huffington via the TV. Sleep deprived and unable to sleep one Sunday night, I got up to journal. Then I turned the TV on to one of my favorite public cable channels - C-Span 2 BookTV. I watched Arianna Huffington talk about her book The Sleep Revolution and then announce her email address.
