Living Happily Ever After

Please enjoy this slightly updated Deb Runs favorite as Bill and I celebrate our thirty-ninth wedding anniversary…   There once was a college freshman who threw a snowball at the window of a nearby dorm.

My Running Story, the Condensed Version

  My brother talked our parents into letting me join the high school track team when I was in eighth grade. At the end of the season, I won the 110% trophy. It was the coach’s way of saying, “You’re not the fastest, but you’ve got heart!” I was hooked! I ran intramural track at […]

Buddy’s Late Night Gym Adventures

I first posted this in December 2015 and it remains one of my favorite DebRuns posts. I hope you enjoy!   The basement was quiet without any noise, No banging or clanging of any gym toys. Just a few empty bottles, and a little spilled water, I nervously wondered if we had a free-loading squatter. Forgetting the season, forgetting […]

The Perfect Christmas Tree for a Wide-Eyed Little Girl

As a couple, Bill and I have never gone out and cut down a Christmas tree. For several years, we purchased our Christmas tree from a nursery, but eventually started buying them from our local volunteer fire department. I reasoned that the fire department would surely sell the freshest-cut trees in town. Looking back, I’m […]

Today is the five-year anniversary of his death and in tribute to my amazing dad, here’s a rerun of […]
