The US Bank Tower race is on Friday. I’ve been looking forward to it for months. Unfortunately, my foot still isn’t 100% better (and that’s still frustrating as hell).

Check out my new medals rack! And then, when you’re done checking out the rack, check out all my medals!
I’ve been earning medals for a few years now, by competing in races. For years, I didn’t have a good way to display them, so I piled them up in Read the rest of this entry »
