Deb Elise Loves It, But Doesn’t Do It Enough

What?  I’m talking about Traveling! In 2006, I worked with Fodor’s on a travel guide for marathoners, The Traveling Marathoner.  It didn’t step on my status as a 2011 Deb, because 75% of it was already written — reviews of sites, restaurants, and hotels already in the Fodor’s database.  My job was to visit each marathon city (the book featured 12 of them — one great U.S. marathon per month),…

On Balance, a.k.a. The Blog Post Deb Elise Should Not Write

There are some topics on which I have no right to blog: Raising twins (don’t have ’em), Skydiving (won’t do it), Sword-Swallowing (ow)… Yet even considering all those, probably the topic on which I have the least right to blog is Balance, and I mean that in every sense of the word.  I will fall over if I try to do tree pose, I’m too impatient to find that perfect…
