Hey y'all. Posting will spotty this week as I'm in the San Joaquin Valley of California for a news story. It's foggy and cold here, and I'm dealing with sources who are now media-shy because of all the pushy and stupid TV reporters out here in the past couple of weeks. Of more which, later.
I was supposed to return to Washington on Wednesday evening, but won't be back until Saturday. That means I'm missing both the NPR holiday party and my company Xmas party. Am I a dedicated reporter, or what?!
But still running: As soon as I got off the plane on Sunday evening, I went on a 4- mile run. For some reason, I got really bad stomach cramps (because I was cooped up in a little tin box for six hours in the air?!) . Yesterday, I ran 5 miles in 42 minutes - that's fast for me.
