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.
February 2012: My first running-related adventure of the year wasn’t a race or a marathon, it was something total different, something I’ll never forget. In December 2011 I was lucky enough to be chosen by Newton Running to be featured Continue reading →
I’m very selective when it comes to what I put my toes in, especially when it comes to running.
