Let it snow!

Discovery! I found an ultra running group on Meetup called New York Trail and Ultra-Running that's great fun! So far, I've joined them at Bear Mountain and Harriman State Park for runs along the North Face Bear Mtn. 50K course that I'll do this May. Here's a taste of what we've been up against in the woods with the snow and ice and freezing water:


Happy trails!

Here's a few highlights from my winter and new year:

I earned straight A's my first semester at Montclair State. I've never done that in school.

I just started to learn to play the guitar. When I was a kid, I played the saxophone, clarinet, and drums. I've forgotten all that by now. In college, I loved watching others play their instruments at Open Mic's. I've written song lyrics over the years and soon I'll be able to play the songs too.

I've wanted to make beer for years. Today my dad and I started a batch of Whiskey Barrel Stout!

What are my New Year's Resolutions? 1) Maintain better mental health. 2) Become a better teacher. 3) Bring more peace into my relationships.

I wish everyone a great New Year, full of love, peace, and laughter!
