I am a freelance health and fitness writer for general audiences and a medical journalist for a group of specialty newspapers for physicians.
I have an undergraduate degree in English from Colgate University and a master’s degree in journalism from Syracuse University. I have been an avid runner since my early teens, and the marathon has become my favorite distance. Running isn't just my favorite workout; it's my passion. When I’m not running, I enjoy baking desserts from scratch, traveling, and spending time with my husband.
I have always enjoyed sports, but I am amazingly uncoordinated, so I was thrilled to discover that distance running requires almost no coordination. If you can put one foot in front of the other, you’re off to a good start. I have been an avid runner since jr. high school, and the marathon has become my favorite distance. Running isn't just my favorite workout; it's my passion, and my running my personal time to think about anything or nothing, depending on the day.
