You know it’s going to be a good day when you’re pinning a race bib to your shirt at 5:30 am!
I’ve done a few running races this year (like the 10K Pride Run and the 10K Coaster Run), but I was much more excited for this race – because it was in a location that, the rest of the year, is completely closed to pedestrians: Read the rest of this entry »

I hate when my bib is crooked!

My birthday was on Sunday, and I celebrated by undertaking a big fitness challenge: by going on five runs, in five different counties, all in one day!
