My first book talk for Run At Destruction is on the horizon – Wednesday, April 29th at 6 p.m. at the Edgerton, Wisconsin Library. What’s special is that it was arranged by the RunLikeAGirl running club (runlikeagirl.net), but is open to the community.  I certainly feel a kinship to other women runners.

Green Bay Women - I'm in first row on the left.

This picture was taken in 1984, just weeks after my best friend, Pamela Bulik, died. (My book focuses on the bizzare circumstances surrounding it.) Each year, the Green Bay gals took a weekend trip to one of the Bonne Bell Races. Normally it had been in Pam’s van. When I went to register at this one, held on Milwaukee’s Lakefront, it was eerie to discover that Pam already had…  Now, more than two decades later, it’s great to see that the continued growth in running is coming from the female population. 

We rule!
