Emilie was agitating to get out. We had hoped to take Isaac to ski something big on Mt. Washington, but the fresh 16 inches of snow created avalanche ratings of “considerable” and “high”. It is also hard to motivate Isaac up hill when there are no friends his age to chase. Everyone we had queried […]

My commuting by bicycle every day and some friendly competition at work motivated Tyson to bicycle more. I had my first serious crash and almost broke my elbow. That took me out for a week.

Emilie Phillips
updated July 12, 2016

I started a new job, and with the new job comes a new commute. The new job is in Harvard Square, and I live in the NH exurbs, so I knew the commute would be difficult. In particular, the primary form of transportation in the exurbs — car — doesn’t work in Cambridge. For the […]
