plan

I’m still alive. I promise. I’ve been out of my blogging routine for a little while. It’s not from a lack of trying. It’s from a lack of priorities. I have all good intentions of writing posts but I never actually make time to sit down to write them. Well, I spend time to write […]

On Monday, Memorial Day, I started my training plan for my first marathon. It’s something that has been a long time coming but I was never really thrilled to do it. Angela started her marathon training last summer for her first marathon, St. Jude Marathon, and I’m following in her footsteps. A year later, I’m […]
