It was an interim period in my life, the time after a rotten breakup. I was in dating mode to prove that someone, anyone, might find me attractive and desirable. I was in my early 40s and having the kind of desperate fun you have when you can't distinguish the pain of being dumped from the pleasure of a new adventure. Running was my solace, the remedy to hitting the wall in my relationships. I joined the Running Experience Club in the Belmont Shore area of Long Beach as a way to soothe my ego, with the added benefit that there were a few cute guys to match my paces.

It is a giving time of the year for the Pope, too. For Christmas, he gave Vatican workers a copy of their church's new catechism. Now, to celebrate the New Year, John Paul II gave himself a day off in the fresh air. On a frosty winter's day, five months after undergoing major bowel surgery, John Paul went skiing for five hours in mountains east of Rome, the Vatican acknowledged Wednesday.

Perhaps the best part of being a fan of One Direction is that it's not so unlike being a member of One Direction. Less than three years into their lives together, these five British boys -- Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson and Harry Styles, all of whom met in 2010 as contestants on England's "X Factor" -- still seem totally stoked on the pop-star experience, their aw-shucks exuberance so far undimmed by the paranoia and resentment...

White House Chief of Staff John H. Sununu reported Tuesday that all four of his ski vacations over the last two years qualified as official trips, requiring taxpayers to pay for his use of a military jet, because he gave speeches while visiting the slopes. The disclosure came in White House documents designed to show that Sununu reimbursed the government for all personal and political travel on military airplanes.

A chaperon injured in a bus accident in Utah while on a ski trip sponsored by the Capistrano Unified School District filed suit Tuesday, claiming that driver negligence and a bus defect caused his injuries. Jay Christopher Morris, 33, contends in his Orange County Superior Court suit that the conduct of six defendants led to an injured right shoulder, fractured right arm, crushed right wrist and nerve damage that could end his career as a Costa Mesa police officer.

Terri Rishel said Wednesday that her first skiing trip will be her last after she and a companion spent three days snowbound in a car on a mountain highway while the temperature dropped as low as 34 below zero. "If someone told me that was possible, knowing the area and the temperatures, I wouldn't have believed they could have survived," state police Capt. M.P. Koerner said.

It is now winter in America, and I am back from my first ski trip in one piece. I've learned some Hebrew, seen a Lakers game and made a serious New Year's resolution. To back up a bit, there was Hanukkah. Since my host family is Jewish and I am Catholic, this meant new rituals and traditions--no Christmas tree, for example, and no Santa Claus. Hanukkah lasts eight days, which represent the eight days that the oil lamp burned in the holy temple of Jerusalem.

A judge ruled Friday that six Poway High School students, suspended and then transferred to another school for having alcohol in their possession at a Colorado ski trip during spring break, should be reinstated at Poway and their disciplinary records expunged. San Diego Superior Court Judge Richard Huffman found that the school failed to adequately notify the students and their parents that it was the sponsor of the mid-April ski trip to the Marriott Hotel in Vail, Colo.

Ah, the fickle heart of Taylor Swift: The singer and One Direction boy-bander Harry Styles are a couple no more, according to reports out Monday. The relationship - which has been public for only a month or so, though the pair were spotted flirting backstage at "The X Factor" in mid-November - came to an end last week with Swift, 23, flying home alone only three days into their vacation in the British Virgin Islands. The two reportedly met in March at the Kids' Choice Awards.

Good food and good skiing are the draw for a five-day ski trip to Italy's Dolomite Mountains. The tour starts in Alta Badia, where skiers stay in a hotel before heading out with a guide for two days on a hut-to-hut tour. Skiers visit the Sella Massif, the high point of the Marmolada Glacier (just under 11,000 feet) and the San Pellegrino and Civetta ski resorts before skiing down the Five Towers and arriving in Cortina d'Ampezzo. Along the way, enjoy meals with wine accenting fresh dishes typical of the South Tyrol and Trentino regions, whether you're staying in hotels or in the huts, also called refugios . The trip ends at Cortina d'Ampezzo.

A plane that crashed in Montana last year carrying three California families to a ski trip may have experienced fuel problems before it diverted and plummeted into in a cemetery near the Butte airport, according to documents released Friday by the National Transportation Safety Board. The cause of the March 2009 crash that killed 14 ? including doctors, dentists and their children ? has been a mystery. While the NTSB has not released any conclusions, the documents shed new light on the accident and suggest a cascading series of events triggered by cold weather, the pilot's failure to add ice inhibitors to the fuel, dicey visibility and possibly a deadly low-altitude stall as the plane came in for landing.

A single-engine plane from California crashed in Butte, Mont., on Sunday afternoon, killing 14 to 17 people, including children, a Federal Aviation Administration spokesman said. A witness in California said he saw about a dozen children ranging in age from 6 to 10. There was speculation that they may have been on a skiing trip. The flight originated in Redlands and made stops in Vacaville and Oroville in Northern California, according to FlightAware.com, a Web-based aviation tracking system.

I first rode a South American ski lift last year, on a sparkling June night in the Argentine Andes. The sun had set only a few minutes earlier, but the Milky Way was already arcing from one end of the valley to the other. Below were the glistening slopes of Los Penitentes, a tiny ski resort where I would soon fulfill my nearly lifelong dream of skiing the Andes. I should have been enjoying the view. Instead, I was staring at my hand.

R. Kevan Gosper, Australia's senior member of the International Olympic Committee, was cleared Monday by the IOC's quasi-independent ethics commission of wrongdoing in connection with Salt Lake City's scandal-marred winning bid for the 2002 Winter Games. In its first major action since its creation last year at the height of the scandal, the ethics panel said Gosper had done nothing wrong when his family traveled to Utah for a skiing holiday in 1993.
