Ladies & Gents:
Sorry for the delay! I thought I'd be able to sneak in some newsletter writing on Sunday night, but the Cherry Blossom 10 Miler was so draining (Those winds! That cold!) and the food I had after so good (that burger at Pearl Dive!) that I took a solid two hour nap instead, and then rolled into taking the day off to walk around DC and marvel in whatever cherry blossoms were left and to stop in at the National Gallery of Art, my favorite place in town.
So let's get to it shall we? More book stuff (I know – shocking, right?)
I have events! Tonight I'll be at Pacers Fairfax at 6:30 for a four-mile run then book talk. On Thursday, I'll be at Pacers Princeton at 6:30 for the same thing (distance TBD). And on April 15, I will be at the Tracksmith Lounge and Showroom at 6 for beers and a book Q&A (no run on that one). Of course there are more events coming up (I shared them in a previous email, new subscribers!) but I'll post again closer to those events and with details when I have them.
Need something right this moment? At 3pm EDT today, I will be the guest at the #connectchat on Twitter talking about writing about your life: the joys, the pitfalls, how you write about people you know, and what happens when a bad review about the story of your life comes out. My hosts should do a summary after the fact – if you can't make the tweet chat now, check back into the newsletter next week and I'll share that summary.
From the Blog
Slacker, so there's nothing.
"Has telecommuting finally become mainstream?" for CIO.com
The New York Times Well Running newsletter launched today. I'm not in this week's bit, but I'm part of the team working on it with my bit coming out later. Still – check it out! And subscribe!
People Say Things about Jen's Book
"Book Review: Running A Love Story by Jen A Miller" at Entomology of a Book Worm
"Running: A Love Story" in Booklist (subscription only, but I can summarize: librarians dig the book, or at least a publication for librarians does)
Jen Talks About Her Book
Pace the Nation podcast appearance. This was a fun one. Most of the Pacers stores are DC-based, and I made a very South Jersey joke I thought no one would get. First person to tweet at me about the podcast did (though he thought it was funny)
Middays with Michele Dawn Mooney appearance. This was my second time on the show – thanks for bringing me back.
Fox 5 DC appearance. UNFORTUNATELY this isn't online so you'll have to settle for the picture above. On the day before Cherry Blossom I did a sit down with their Saturday morning talk show. I was after puppets. Two puppets (sorry no picture of the puppets)
What I'm Watching
Daredevil! I had a dream that someone I'mw writing about came after me with a double barrel shotgun so maybe I shouldn't be watching Daredevil, but I just can't stop. I'm also throwing in episodes of Animaniacs, which is now on Netflix. I am delighted. My brother is deeper in than I am (with his son of WHICH I APPROVE good job on raising that nephew right), and aside from some of the Hello Nurse stuff, said that it mostly holds up – and will more so if Bill Clinton brings out the sax at a Hillary event. Also there's some weird overlap with the You Must Remember This podcast.
What I'm Reading
Once again: Drums of Autumn. It'll be like that for a while.
And with that, I'm out. A lot of people have asked me how I'm doing, and my blanket answer is: I'm tired. I am. But I am also feeling so lucky that enough people care about this book that I can be tired because of it.
