A writer and editor who has gone running with Eric Alexander.

About Me

I'm a former editor of Running Times and co-author of four books on running. These days, I write most frequently for Runner's World, Weekly Reader, the New York Road Runners, Uta Pippig and KIMbia. I've been an opinion columnist for Running Times and Marathon and Beyond, and have been published in the Washington Post, Slate, Men's Fitness and Continental Airlines' in-flight magazine, among others.

Although my specialties are running, fitness and health, please don't typecast me. I've had full-time editorial positions with the National Recreation and Park Association, the American Association of Homes and Services for the Aging and the American Association of Blood Banks, and I've done substantive freelance editing for the International Association of Fire Chiefs and the Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America.

Most pertinent here, I love music.
