Work With Me

9 Weeks. 9 Freaking Weeks.

I’m about 9 weeks out from tearing my plantar fascia. Three weeks longer than I’ve ever gone without running since I was a kid. And let’s just call it was it is- it’s the longest I’ve ever gone because kids always run so there was no starting point. Running has never not been a constant in … more »

4 Weeks Already
