Another Weekend Away And Weekly Workouts

This was one of those weeks where running just had to take a backseat to everything else. It wasn’t really planned, but as the week progressed I realized I would just do what I could and not worry about it too much. I got back from Arkansas on Sunday evening, and then jumped right into […]

Warm Weather, Daylight Savings, and a Boston Baby Shower

I can’t believe the weekend is over already, and the time change isn’t helping. I’m excited that springing ahead means that we will have more light in the evenings, but the mornings are going to be rough for the next few weeks. And I am not a fan of losing that hour of the weekend. […]
