By Meredith Goldstein Globe staff Sometimes I hear about a kind of jealousy between people in New York City and Boston. But it has nothing to do with baseball. It’s about a different thing. My single friends in Boston tell me it would be “sooo much easier” to find love if they lived in New York City. Those friends (and some Boston-area readers of my Globe advice column) believe that the dating options would be more plentiful in New York, and that there’d be a better night life scene for meeting strangers. They know for certain there’d be a more diverse dating pool — and perhaps fewer men on apps in TB12 hats. (Not judging the apparel, but that particular look and fandom isn’t for everyone.)

I knock on the door. A strange woman answers. My brain is momentarily stumped, but I soldier on.“Oh, I’m just here to meet Sara,” I say. “She doesn’t live here anymore,” the woman says, dryly. “I’m the new owner.” Advertisement Suddenly the proverbial light bulb clicks on and I remember my neighbor had, indeed, moved months earlier to a nearby condo that I had actually visited. I mumble an apology, back down the front stoop, and set off for her correct address. And, like everyone over 60 who has these senior moments, I feel a surge of momentary panic that this lapse isn’t just distraction or forgetfulness, but a sure sign of dementia.

You can’t miss this group of women as they walk up to the Trailhead sign by the Trinity River in Fort Worth, Texas. They range in age, from mid-twenties to early forties, and two of them are pushing double strollers with toddlers in tow.But each one looks fit, happy, and ready to do one thing: run, and run hard. They’d just prefer to do it together. Advertisement - Continue Reading Below Cowtown Elite is a track club made up of 16 women, most of whom are aiming to compete in the Cross Country Championships in February and qualify for the 2020 Olympic Team Trials for the marathon. It all started almost two years ago, when a small group of friends noticed they were all running at the same pace—a very fast pace. Before they knew it, it was growing: So-and-so met their friend so-and-so, and the group decided to run together and become USATF-certified. They did, and now they are gaining recognition at races and within the Fort Worth community. There’s a competitive … [Read more...] about These Women Are Chasing the 2020 Olympic Marathon Trials Together
Ordinary voters flocking to political protests. Activists channeling their anger at the president and his policies. Several otherwise safe incumbents taken down in primaries. Nearly a decade after conservative activists turned their anger at then-President Barack Obama and federal spending into the tea party movement, progressive Democrats are staging their own revolt. Story Continued Below Their primary victories — from Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ayanna Pressley in the Northeast to Stacey Abrams and Andrew Gillum in the South — reflect the emerging influence of a younger and more diverse generation of Democrats infuriated not only by President Donald Trump, but by what they view as their own party’s fecklessness in Washington. Like the tea party in 2010, the movement’s first victims are members of a congressional wing that’s seen as out of touch at the grass-roots level. “This is the first wave of an invasion to attack the things that this … [Read more...] about ‘This is the first wave of an invasion’
