On September 25, 2021, I finished my last three peaks of the 48 4000-footers in New Hampshire. It took me 7 years to complete the NH48, but apart from Lincoln and Lafayette, the remaining summits (46 of them!) were completed in 15 months during the pandemic, from July 2020 to September 2021.
The Reluctant Runner
6 weeks ago, I started running. And since I’ve never shown any interest in running before, unless it was to a buffet or an open bar, you might be asking WHY??? Why would I decide to do something so out of character, so difficult, so UNLIKE ME?? Well..
Jealousy is a green monster, and her name is Kiwi.
I am writing today to get something off of my chest, as well as my head and shoulders. Meet Kiwi.
A Month of Letters
Yesterday marked the start of a wonderful challenge: LetterMo.
WordPress Post A Week 2011 Challenge
In order to keep myself on track with blogging this year, I’ve committed to the WordPress Post A Week 2011 Challenge. Haven’t heard of it? Click that link for the details; in sum it’s a way for bloggers to step up and say I WILL WRITE MORE. I WILL DO IT. NO I AM NOT GOING BACK UPSTAIRS TO BED.
The challenge asks that participants announce their intent publicly on their blog (likely so your readers can hold you accountable). So here goes. I, Dishy, of The Daily Dish do solemnly swear that I will uphold the principles put forth in the WordPress Post a Week 2011 Challenge. I promise to write at least one blog post per week — but if I get too busy and miss the deadline by a handful of days, that is okay too. At the end of 2011 I should have 52 new posts. Or more. Amen.
