The Couple Who Studies Together…

I wrote this nearly two years ago, as I reflected on how long V and I have been together, and where our path has taken us.  It’s an interesting burden, being married to someone pursuing a career in medicine.  Our journey began in college, where our friendship deepened over hours of studying.  Studying has been […]

Tennis, Anyone?

Just as running has a special place in my heart and a lengthy history in my life, tennis and I go even farther back.  I went for my first real “run” when I was about 8, but I started taking tennis lessons at the age of 5.  It was love at first hit, you could […]
