Today’s 18 miler was tough, but I enjoyed it. There were flashes of brilliance to keep me going.  It all started with a dream…. (Wayne’s World Dream sequence noises “Dooddotdurldoo!

Hello Fall! Every runner’s favorite time of year.  The sun is still shining, the pollen is down, the runs are cooler, the times are faster, and it’s the time of year where being outside makes you feel great to be alive.  I used to be a Summer girl for the majority of my life, but […]
