Why I Run

It's Global Running Day! 5AM came rather quickly, but I surprisingly didn't have trouble getting out of bed. Connor and I planned on doing something this morning that we — interestingly — have never done before: run together on a week day before going to work. Anyone I know will tell you that I'm not...

Running Isn’t the Only Challenge

The countdown begins... After I finished my long run on Sunday, a thought came into my head. Ok, there are often many, many thoughts and conversations roaming around my head at one time (#introvertproblems), but there was one in particular that came in loud and clear: "girl, there's only one more long training run left!" My first reaction:... Continue Reading →
