- I am a 48-year-old free-lance writer and editor, wife, and mother of two teenagers. I was born in Detroit, grew up in its suburbs and moved to Chicago when I was 25.
- I love to run: I have done eight half marathons and recently completed my third full and second Chicago Marathon. Portland (below) was No. 2.
- I am a die-hard, lifelong music fan: My husband’s band, The Bishop’s Daredevil Stunt Club, is at the top of my play list.
- I love to travel: My family takes regular road trips around the U.S., and we have also journeyed to England, France, Italy and the Netherlands.
I share my experiences as a wife, mother, runner, groupie and traveler here on this blog. I also reflect on the past I left behind in Michigan. Come along for the ride.
