About me

“This is what you shall do: Love the earth and the sun and the animals.” — Walt Whitman

“And exercise to exhaustion four or five times a week.” — Me

I’m a writer, runner, mom x4, compulsive rescuer of animals (sometimes to their detriment), a Catholic and a Sabbath keeper.

I can muck stalls like nobody’s business.

My day job is at The Deseret News, where I’m the Ideas and Culture editor, and I also review books for The Hippo in southern New Hampshire.

I post here sporadically about running and animals and strong coffee and other things that make me happy.

I’m also sporadically on Twitter at @grahamtoday or @endierunner. (The “endie” is for endomorph, which is what I am.)

On Facebook, I’m even more sporadically at @confessionsofafatrunner and @byjennifergraham. (Do you sense a theme? I’m sorry, I should do more, but I’d rather be running.)

There are 1,113 Jennifer Grahams in the US.  Several are writers, but I’m pretty sure I’m the only one with donkeys.

You can reach me at byjennifergraham@gmail.com, where I’m still waiting for my farm to come in.

This is me somewhere in Rome. I don’t know where, but I was ecstatically happy wherever I was because despite all my weapons-grade faults and epic screwups, I somehow have four phenomenal kids who took their mother to Rome.
