Tomell: You delve further into IVF on your blog.
Kossow: The blog is open to people going through infertility or looking for someone to bounce ideas with. I don't give specific advice. I'm not a medical professional. [It's] to let people in on my personal experiences and the different topics [and] conversations.
Tomell: You have added a new goal – training for your first New York City Marathon this fall.
Kossow: I've officially been invited. I'm running for Team for Kids, a children's charity. All the money I raise will be for that. I was [running] for exercise. It became something I truly enjoy. It's my first and probably my last. New York City is one of my favorite places. [The marathon] runs through all five boroughs. My husband [and] Ferris will be there. I want to finish.
