Running Down Memory Lane: 2014 in Review

Running Down Memory Lane: 2014 in Review

Happy New Year! First things first, it has been a long while since I have blogged which is so very unlike me.

Race Recap: A Midsummer Night’s Run

“The course of true love never did run smooth”. -A Midsummer Night’s Dream (Act I, Scene I) Running is just like being in a relationship. It is demanding (you are never satisfied with the last race). It is selfish (your body doesn’t get time off).  It is passionate (who doesn’t adore the glory of the finish line?).  It … Continue reading
