Ladies & Gents:
It's fall! That means a fall book tour. Special thanks to Rehan Choudhry for taking one look at the graphic I did myself and said "nope!" and did this for me.
There's a chance I'll be adding a date or two, but for now, this is it. The run on Sept. 10 went swimmingly. That's how much I sweat during it. I also ran the Mac & Cheesesteak 5k on Sunday. The name came from the food truck that gave free food to runners after. I'm not a cheesesteak fan so I had a muffin. I know. That's not the point. But I did finish second in my age group and won this beauty:
Running is so weird and wonderful.

What I'm Reading
I took a break between Arthur Miller essays to read Kathrine Switzer's memoir Marathon Woman. I didn't know that her name is spelled Kathrine and not Katherine because her dad made a mistake on the birth certificate. And copyeditors have been tripped up every since! I finished that yesterday so I'm back to the essays. I'm in the 1960s, and Miller's writings about McCarthism and life after WW II are oddly (and sadly/scary) applicable today. I'm glad I'm reading it.
What I'm Watching
I finished Marcella. Yikes! That was a "turn the iPad away during certain scenes" show. Now I'm onto the much more delightful – and less bloody – Galavant. It's finally on Netflix…after it's already been cancelled. Boo, ABC. Boo.
