So I haven't blogged in a while.... so beware, this may be long! I've run two 5Ks and a 5 Mile race since my last blog. Both of the 5Ks were PRs for me... 31:40 and and 31:20. That 31:20 kicked my ass, and I had been hoping for sub 30.... I... Read more

My 5K is this Saturday and I am starting to get really nervous. This is my first race ever, so on top of the newbie nerves, I'm starting to question if I chose the right race to be my first. It's part of the Baltimore Running Festival, and I'm a... Read more
