Glass City Marathon 2019

Running a Marathon on Low Mileage

You know how, when you’re training for a race, there’s always something that gets in the way?  I figured out that’s just life. There will always be some obstacle to deal with.

Back To Regular Training Runs

For the first time since Saturday, I got to enjoy a good ol’ regular training run. It was fun doing things a little differently the last few days. It also made me appreciate how easy it is for me to slip out the door every morning with plenty of choices for how and where to […]
