I have seen the future of American ultrarunning. Its name is Sage Canaday. 6:16:10 course record at #WR50 today — Holy Krup!

Went to a contra dance last night & stayed for over an hour. Those who know me well know how remarkable this is.

Leila Z. ’00 cooked dinner for my 5-year-old, then explained Poe’s “The Telltale Heart” to him. A very @WilliamsCollege evening!

Today I caved in to my cravings and had corn on the cob and key lime pie for breakfast. Is this what it’s like to be pregnant?

My 5-year-old son, to the bus driver: “Have a good day!” Then, to me: “That’s the nicest thing I could think of.”

Just saw “We Bought a Zoo.” My 5-year-old son: “I wish *we* could buy a zoo … so I could wear one of those little [zookeeper] shirts.”
