So I knew we were going to get storms tonight, so "being a good little sparkie" I decided I would try to walk early. When I left my house it was bright and sunny. About 1/2 mile before my walk was over there was a huge downpour. No joke... Read more

Today seemed much easier than the first day of the week! I wasn't expecting that because I actually ate dinner tonight right before I ran. Usually I run in the mornings or right before dinner. I thought eating right before would make me slugg... Read more
