And so we've come [clap] to the end of the road [clap]
Almost. This week I am doing my *last* *two* *book* *events* – well, at least those of the spring leg:
CHICAGO! June 8 at Universal Sole at 6:30pm (if you want to run – if not, meet us at the store about an hour later). I'll also be at the Running & Fitness Event for Women that Thursday if you're an industry type and in town.
BROOKLYN! June 12 at the Brooklyn Running Company at 10am for a run then brunch (if you just want to hear me talk: same thing – stop by an hour later). I'm also running the New York Mini 10k the day before so laaaaaaaaaadies I'll be there, wearing my very favorite and very NSFW socks. Hint: they are not pink.
It's been great fun, and a lot of work and travel, from my first event at my hometown running store to Boston on marathon weekend to the mega (!) event with Jack Rabbit Sports on Wednesday night in New York City to a literary salon I did in western New Jersey on Saturday night. But it's just about time for me to take a summer holiday (from book stuff, not work stuff because, you know: mortgage). I'm going to work on scheduling some more events around summer travels, and I've already gotten some requests for the fall, so stay tuned!
Sick of me yet? Sorry. On Friday, we tried to do a Facebook Live event for the New York Times Well section, and had some…technical difficulties. But we're going to try again! We're shooting for Friday afternoon again, but not sure what time. Make sure to like their page for updates!
"How to Run a Faster Marathon," New York Times. Wheeeee boy this took a lot of work, and I may be biased, but I think it looks GREAT. I wrote this while I was in the second half of my training for the New Jersey Marathon, and I used a lot of the advice therein to PR. If you like this, thank you! We've got more coming too.

What I'm Reading
Major Pettigrew's Last Stand by Helen Simonson. A delightful, incredibly British read. I really do want to go back. Maybe later this year.
What I'm Watching
I just finished the first season of Broadchurch and am into the second season. Oy. So good. So sad but so good. I listened to an interview with the show runner of Fargo and he said that doing a show like that is making a 10-hour movie instead of a TV show. That's what this feels like. That's what a lot of good TV feels like. I don't mind it.
