HM #6: the horrible one

Monday, June 03, 2013      15 comments

run, ST, food

Saturday, March 30, 2013      14 comments

Saturday, December 01, 2012      28 comments

I've been waiting for this moment since I realized it was in reach a few months ago. When I made goals last January, I had no idea what my yearly mileage would be. Now I know! This morning I crossed 1,000 miles in 2012. 1,004 to be exact. And wi... Read more
