Hi friends! Guess what? I FINALLY made it back to the track this morning! Between all the travel I’ve been doing and all the snow/ice we had over the past month and a half, I hadn’t been to the track for my Potomac River Runners group in wayyyyyy too long. I skipped last Thursday and this Tuesday because of the Rock ‘n’ Roll DC half Continue Reading …

Morning, friends! We have some snow here in DC today – enough to cancel my morning track workout and to give the government a 2 hour delay, but that’s about it.

Good morning, my friends! I had such a good run this morning – one of those runs where you just feel awesome. Don’t you love that? It certainly doesn’t happen every day, so I made sure to appreciate it even more. :) Even though getting up is hard, I really love being up and out before most people are. I met up with my friend Sokphal at Continue Reading …
