Today I took a little bit of a break from my half marathon training and I did a 15k. I guess that wasn't really a break was it? Today's half training called for 8 miles at a 12.0 min/mile pace. I did 9.3 miles for the race. I did it for fun ... Read more

It has been over a year now since I started to run. It has been a real struggle for me. But I am doing it and I love it! Actually, I should say that I have a love hate relationship with it. I don't love it so much when I am doing it. But I ... Read more
