Well, Hello There Darlings

Its been a while. Mostly because I’ve been overhauling the site with a little help from my friend Brandon of BDG WebDesign. It shouldn’t look much different to anyone, but everything behind the scenes is new and improved and it took some time to get it done.

I’ve also bypassed running when the roads have been excessively crappy which seems like a lot. I used to run no matter what, but then I broke my foot. That taught me to be more of a fair weather runner – or at least less stupid about running. Winter running isn’t just about the clothing you wear – although that makes it manageable – it’s about being safe and following rules differently.Read More »Winter Running
