So, last night I got home from a Girls Night Out around 11:30pm. Woke up at 5:30am to meet my new running buddy, Sarah (see "Running Buddies") for a nice easy 7-mile run. Everything was wonderful. I took a gel (Hammer Orange - BLECH!) before t... Read more

Well, so far it seems that my ankle simply wanted to MOVE more! Pssshhh. Woke up this morning at 5am because I wanted to get some great quiet time in and have a cup of coffee before my run. It's been 4 days since I've run and I was both ex... Read more

Yesterday was a weird day and I was struggling with my numbers (see "Where Were Those Bootstraps????" for a recap). I suppose it's lucky, then, that I'd already scheduled a running partner for 6:30am this morning. Forced me out on my run. We ... Read more
