When I tell people that I’m going to watch a 50k or 50 mile race I get various reactions, while most people think it’s awesome, I’ve had a few people question me, wondering why, or wondering if I’ll get bored, asking me what I’ll do for all that time. The answer to those questions is very easy, why wouldn’t I, never, and cheer my heart out! This past weekend my boyfriend, Ethan aka Continue reading
Since I knocked out a lot of “firsts” in 2012 I thought I’d do a quick recap of all the fun, exciting, sweaty, sometimes painful and tear-filled places it took me.
