Our Year: 2013

So the hot thing to do on blogs is a year review or something like that. And I definitely can’t be left behind. This took some work to go back and look things up and I’m not really into doing a lot of work, so read and make me feel better about the time I … more »

Monumental Marathon Weekend!

Chicago Half Marathon – A Tough Day

If you can’t tell by the post title I had a bad day. It sucked. I am trying my best to move on from it and chalk it up to bad race conditions and no taper but I can’t help to not question myself in the immediate aftermath. I know that this thinking is flawed … more »
