What it was like to canvas for Hillary in NH

I realize most of us (all of us?) are ready for the election and the election talk to be over… me too! But I really need to decompress and write about the morning I had, so I hope you’ll be kind enough to just skip this post if you’re not interested, and read on if you’re curious.

I am mildly surprised to find myself […]

Greg and I both put in some rainy miles while the kids were off with family, and then went into Portland for vegan sausages and local beer. Because sometimes comfort food is a must. It was a cold, wet run…  but there’s something healing about running in the rain. I found […]
