As then-17-year-old Sarah Melanson crossed the finish line of the ChesapeakeMan Ultra Championship early this fall, she couldn't believe what she had just endured. She had swum 2.4 miles through jellyfish-infested waters, had biked 112 miles while battling near-record winds and then, to cap off a 15-hour effort, had run 26.2 miles for a full marathon. "I was like, 'Are you sure I did that?'" Melanson said. "It was completely surreal. I couldn't even believe I had just done it. " Her disbelief was shared by the family members who gathered to watch her finish, long after darkness set on the dimly lit course in Cambridge in Dorchester County.

IN THE RELATIVELY short time (barely six years) I've worked as a music critic, I've had a few I-must-be-dreaming moments. There was that autumn afternoon in a New York City hotel bar when I laughed long and loud and did some serious dishing with the very real Chaka Khan. The summer before he died suddenly of a heart attack, Johnnie Taylor and I spent an entire afternoon together at his spacious Dallas home. The underrated Southern soul-blues legend played me demos for a new album. Later, we rode around the neighborhood in his shiny new SUV. But when I met Stevie Wonder about four years ago at a songwriters' award reception in Manhattan, I thought I was going to pass out. My face felt hot; my nerves started jumping.

The Greek parliament approved a $113 billion austerity package that had been demanded by the European Union and the International Monetary Fund as a condition for receiving a $17 billion installment of the $160 billion "bailout" package negotiated last year. This cash infusion will allow Greece to avoid defaulting on debt obligations due in July and August. This is a precursor to negotiations on a new "bailout" package that must be created to prevent Greece from defaulting on its debt over the next five years.

The recipe I tried was too much of a shortcut. When I finished making the Beef and Nectarine Stir-Fry, the beef was overdone and tough. The directions should have been clearer. The book says to slice along the grain when the beef is frozen, but it does not describe the width of each slice.
