This morning was the perfect morning. It left me with so many running thoughts…. The kids left for school by 7:30am, the air was cool and crisp, the sun was shining. Everything fell neatly into place. I ate my oatmeal and headed out for a run by 8:30am. I didn’t use my Garmin and I […]

5AM Run Club

The 5am Club is definitely not a new theory, although to some it can sound crazy the first time they hear about it.
