Yesterday I registered for the local Resolution Run on December 30th! Yay!! Okay, so here’s why this is so exciting to me… I’ve done a few 5km races and recently did my first 10km. I had wanted to get in another 10km before the holidays but haven’t been able to find anything in my area […]

Go Runner Go!

Got back out there the past two days and ran a solid 5km each time. After 5 days off for Thanksgiving and irregular training prior to that due to shin splints, I assumed that my first few runs back would be difficult. To my surprise they were fabulous! I felt rested, strong, fast and above […]
