Hello again friends! This has been yet another hectic, crazy, but ever-productive week. Most notably, my time has been consumed by what I am now calling "The Great Spring Clean of 2013."

Sunday Although I would normally have been kicking butt for 11 miles (as was the plan this week … Continue reading Cough, Cough, GO AWAY!
Although I constantly test my luck and think I can outsmart my body, you can only wear yourself down so much before you end up getting sick. The Decline I developed a little upper respiratory weirdness when I was traveling to the Tinker Bell Half. My symptoms were mostly a runny nose and it luckily resolved … Continue reading You Can Only Wear Yourself Down So Much…
