Marathon

It’s been very quiet on the blog. Sorry about that. It’s been incredibly busy in the Gillis household. Between regular life things happening, getting the house ready for Baby G, and marathon training taking over my days, there’s just not enough time in the day. Speaking of marathon training, I can’t stop. That’s the overall theme of […]

I’m running on behalf of charity. Action For Healthy Kids to be exact. Angela ran for them last year and […]

Angela and I are in the December 2015 issue of Runner’s World Magazine! In September, we found out that we would have a story in a future issue of the magazine. It was something that I was excited about. I was more excited for the opportunity for Angela. One of her dreams was to be […]

For the past week, I’ve been really thinking about what I have been  doing for the past few months. Unfortunately, I’ve realized that in terms of goals that I’ve really done nothing. I’ve been driving on a road to nowhere. Most of us don’t really set goals. We just live our lives with no clear […]
