    Low Carb Denver – An Amazing Conference at the Wrong Time in History

    “May you live in interesting times.” Austin Chamberlain, UK I was an hour away from walking out the door to go to Low Carb Denver. One hour… My bags were packed and sitting on a chair in the living room. My precious presentation poster was in a long mailing tube, my 500 postcards for the visitor swag bags were adding almost 8 lbs to my shoulder bag. My passport and US money were in my travel purse. But all morning, I had been watching the news feeds with a knot in my stomach. The coronavirus was advancing across the world and the situation was changing hourly, both at home in…

    Rediscovering a Love of Physical Strength

    Last summer, my just barely reborn running career came to a screeching halt when I was told that I had a 15-16 cm ovarian cyst. All bouncing activities were to be avoided, in case the cyst ruptured and spilled its contents throughout my lower abdomen. Given that the cyst turned out to be cancerous, it’s a good thing that I grudgingly conceded defeat and quit running early last August. In hindsight, a ruptured cyst would have been a really bad thing… After surgery in late September, finding out I had cancer, another surgery in early December, 5 weeks of post-op bladder spasming, then 5 months of chemo, I was pretty…
