It turns out that poulet yassa is a traditional dish in both Senegal and Guinea, helping me catch up on the culinary aspect of my misadventures.

As I type this, not as it posts, it’s the actual day of the actual Baltimore Festival of Running. I am not running. I did my marathon, twice, earlier this month.

This got more obvious as my state put a formal stay-at-home order in place as of last night. Not that I was doing otherwise. Anyway…
While I continue to get my 30 minute workout, which in all fairness contributes to my daily 10,000+ steps (8 weeks and counting now, for both) — I’ve also been really trying to hit 250 steps per hour (for the 14 hours I’m awake, based on Continue reading “Stepping up (but not out – obviously)”
