IMG_0100

The GW Parkway Classic 10 Miler has been on my bucket list for years now.

Every winter, I slog through cold, dark, and dreary runs, wondering if maybe I don’t actually love running as much as I thought I did. And then every spring, I fall in love with running all over again. I was planning on sleeping in this morning; I even signed up for a yoga class tonight after work at Epic Yoga in Dupont via ClassPass (it’s too Continue Reading …
