Half marathon in 8 days. Haven’t really trained. Longest run I’ve done is 8 miles, and that was 2 or 3 weeks ago. Race day is going to hurt. If I go run long thisContinue reading
I got a Twitter DM from a great and old friend one morning last week. “I’ll be in Orlando Jan 9-13. When are we rolling?” I immediately sent him back a message letting him knowContinue reading
My intention was to write a long descriptive post about how awsum this run was. Unfortunately, I haven’t had much time to blog, and have now forgotten most of the details. That’s a good thing,Continue reading
