I’m a writer and reporter in Marin County, which is across the Golden Gate Bridge from San Francisco. I primarily write about endurance sports, gender issues, food and health, and travel. I also write lots of deeply insider things about triathlon.

I used to be the editor for San Anselmo-Fairfax Patch, and before that I was the editor of a paper that covered the same area. I’ve also produced and hosted a weekly show on local news, and have appeared on radio and TV to talk about triathlon, haunted houses, and things to know before you travel. And I regularly manage corporate communications and social media projects for luxury companies and media brands.

For a brief second, I raced as an elite triathlete after college, but quit the sport for a few years. Now, I’m back to amateur racing, training a lot, and competing more than ever. I coach triathlon clinics, swim groups, youth triathletes, and high school running. If you want to read more about my triathloning and sports thoughts, check out my blog Sunny Running — it’s an ironic name.

  1. i believe you left out glenview… a fairly important part of your life🙂 and VERY different from chicago

    1. yeah, but “then we moved to chicago, then we moved to another place in chicago, then we moved to the suburbs” doesn’t really mesh well with my narrative. gosh.

      1. yeah. The list of the seventeen places we moved before you were in 7th grade sort of slows down the story. But Maggie is right that Glenview is WAY different from Chicago.
