I’m leaving town this week with a dear friend of mine whom I’ve known my entire life, to visit another dear friend of ours whom we’ve known almost as long. We will be traveling to this place called Austin, TX. Perhaps you’ve heard of it. It’s fun! One really cool aspect of my friend going … Continue reading Running, Moming, and Laundry, Oh My!
I have been taking some time to work on my half marathon training plan the past couple of weeks, and I think I've decided what I'm going to do. I came to my decision in a rather unexpected way.

We had a long run of wonderful weather in the state I live in, but that time has unfortunately come to an end. As a result, I have to run on the "dread"mill. I have a love/hate relationship with that piece of machinery. There are some really great things about running on a treadmill. For … Continue reading The Winter Running Blues
