Run, Karla, Run!

Notes From a Running Nerd

I’m not the fastest runner, and I’m not the slowest. But I am a card-carrying nerd. That’s right. A reporter and writer by trade, I love to research, read, learn and cogitate, almost compulsively so. So, stick with me. Like all good nerds, I’ll do your homework and share my musings. But the running is up to you!
