Fueled By Marathon Training: I’ve almost completed my second week in marathon training. It’s going pretty well. Running in the afternoon is […]

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 […]
