Welcome to my website! This site is a place to show off samples of my front-end code, my photos, and other random things. Unfortunately, I have not yet mastered the art of digitizing dessert, so I cannot offer any baking samples here.

What’s happening now?

This has been a crazy, crazy year so far. I closed on my townhouse in February, which means two things: I am definitely in NoVa to stay and I have spent a good portion of this year doing new homeowner things. Trust me – that has been keeping me very, very busy.

In addition to that, I have spent quite a bit of time traveling – both for work and for fun! So far, I have been to New York City and Chicago to visit family, the Caribbean for vacation, Boston twice (because why not?), San Francisco for work, and Montana. What’s on tap for the rest of the year? Probably another work trip to San Francisco and the Berkshires! Yay!

And in running news…

This fall was a busy running season for me! I ran the Annapolis Ten Miler race at the end of August. This was my first race in Annapolis, my first 10 mile race. It was an absolutely gorgeous course that I ran in a time I am crazy happy about: 1:40:47.

A couple of very short weeks later, I ran two back-to-back races. The first was the Dulles Day 10K, a race on a real runway at Dulles International Airport. 1:02:35. One week later, I ran the Clarendon Day 10K. Another fun, fast race. I ran a PR on this one. 1:01:42. Fantastic!

My race season this year was short… and is probably over, save a few small races between now and the end of the year. Next year… marathon?
