Thoughts of a medieval historian and distance runner.
Author: Vanessa R. Corcoran
I'm a medieval historian who specializes in devotion to the Virgin Mary in the later Middle Ages (c. 1200-1500). My friends know me as an avid runner who loves running around my adopted home of Washington, D.C. I'm happily married to my husband Pat, and we love playing with our English Bulldog, Heshie. I'm currently working on a memoir of my experiences in a doctoral program, entitled "It's a Marathon, Not a Sprint: Lessons Learned on the Road to the Boston Marathon and Ph.D." I enjoy writing about running, medieval history, and my experiences in higher education.
