My Running Valentines: Dorothy Beal

Last fall, I had the idea to write a post each day of November dedicated to the runners for whom I am most grateful. Sort of like all of those November “gratitude” posts you see on Facebook but this would be focused on runners. Because I know without a doubt that it is the runners […]

I’m going Pro! (BibRave Pro!)

Big Announcement! I recently learned that I have been accepted to be part of the 2018 BibRave Pro team! A few months ago, I was talking with a running friend and we both agreed that if we could just run races and talk about running races for the rest of our lives, we would be […]
