I had the best time this morning! Like in I really, really enjoyed the race. I had not run a race since September of 2018, bailing on my last 2 races due to health issues. So it was wonderful to get a successful one under my belt again. ... Read more

I ran easy yesterday, enjoying my run, just over 12 minutes per mile pace. I plan to run the 5K on Saturday morning (the Fun 'n Run 5K at the Fun 'n Sun Fly In at the airport) just a bit faster. We'll see. I won't be near as fast as my PR in 20... Read more

The Company of Youth and Dog
Wednesday, March 27, 2019      18 comments

I feel like I should have profound words and insights to share as I adapt to my new reality, missing the soft furriness and constant tail-wagging positivity Kahlua gave us for 8 years. It's Wednesday and Martin wanted to walk again and it is Spr... Read more
