Code Snippet : Building a trackhub

By |

Every once in a while I get a request from various researchers to host data for visualization in the UCSC Genome Browser. After having generated hundreds of links, I’ve decide to move toward their trackhub system. The downside to this, is the need for a trackDB.txt file, which contains all of the meta information.

First, for […]

T-Minus 20 Days

By |

There are twenty days left to get my ass into half-marathon shape. After a weekend filled with family and friends in Boston, I am ready to make the final push towards the finish line and work off some of the bachelor party beer weight.

We have only one truly long run left this coming weekend, which […]

Drones over head while racing?

Say you were pumped up and all ready to go for your first 5k. You did the training, paid your registration, and were lined¬†up at the start line. Above you, a drone recording the race whizzes by ready for the gun to go off. The race starts, and off you and all the other runners […]

Complementary Ear-plugs!

When making travel arrangements, I like to play Priceline roulette. By naming my own price, I save a lot of money, but it is always an adventure to see where I end up. This time around, I have a lovely hotel right on Boston harbor!

What a lovely setting to spend a few days! However, like […]

Paying Attention to My Nutrition Is Hard

By |

Now that Jon and I are training for a half marathon and have a few weddings this summer that we’d like to be in better shape for, I’ve been logging meals, water intake, and exercise¬†in My Fitness Pal nearly daily. I’ve used the app on and off for a couple of years now, and I’ve […]

Spaghetti Squash Bolognese

By |

I feel like it has been 9 years since I did a blog post. I apologize! Wedding planning, hitting the gym 5 days a week, working 5 days a week, weekends away and a part time job on some weekends have really filled up my days. Mike and I officially hit the “3 months to […]

Honestly, I want to see you be brave.

As some of you may have noticed from the scrolling list of public workouts, I’ve been going to yoga classes once or twice a week since the beginning of the year. Yoga has always been something I’ve really wanted to like, but always found myself in classes that were either too challenging or full of […]
