Photo of the week: Incredible fall foliage along my running path. Certainly makes getting out there and logging the miles easier with this view!

Start your week right! Every Sunday I post my favorite links from around the web and share my goals for the upcoming week.


On Blogging:

On Happiness:

On Setting Priorities:

Think You Know What Your Priorities Are? Prove It: If you think you know what your priorities are, that’s awesome, but are you actually working toward achieving them? Nicole asks some tough, but important questions for those working toward big goals in this post.

On Public Relations:

This Week on

Practice Makes Permanent: How to Establish and Maintain Positive Habits: You know that old saying? “Practice makes perfect.” Throw it out the window. Instead, think: “Practice makes permanent” + other thoughts on forming good habits.


  • Network and learn a ton at the PRSA International Conference kicking off today in Philadelphia. Last night I had the opportunity to finally meet one of my mentors, Jason Mollica, in person and I look forward to meeting other Twitter friends in the next few days!
  • Try for a new personal record at the 10K race I’m running on Saturday. I’ve only run a handful of 10Ks (it doesn’t seem to be a very popular distance in this area) so I’m excited for the chance to run 6 miles and hopefully beat my previous time.
