Pre-Race Planning With Tinker Bell … Continue reading Blonde Ambition

I had a lot of fun with this "challenge" and feel absolutely great on … Continue reading Seven Day Streak? SUCCESS!
I feel like I am finally playing catch up on almost everything. Sleep. Check. Running. Check. Time with Charles. Check. Plus, a bunch of other things. Let me just start by saying that I feel like a human being again. Restoring myself to feeling normal was step one. Aside from getting a normal night's sleep … Continue reading Playing Catch Up
