Fact: Beer tastes 26.2 times better after 26.2 miles. (And in a dry, non-sweaty shirt.)
Fantastic run this morning. After a week of zeroes thanks to an injured knee, I got out for four miles in NYC. No knee pain!
After graduating from college in 2005, I decided to start keeping a reading log. Since then, I've read 196 books. That's 69,481 pages in case you're curious. These days, I'm reading fewer books than I once was (thanks mainly to a subscription The Economist), but books are still regularly added to the Reading Log.

To date, I've run 49 marathons in 29 states, the most recent being Ohio. Eventually, the goal is to get all 50, but that's going to take a while. Here's a map of the progress. My personal best is a 2:52:11, set in March 2013, but the goal is to improve that too. For more running stats, visit my running log.
Go @ericasara! We're out cheering her on as she runs a 5K. #nationalrunningday
Emmett seems to like the backyard campfire.
