I took this picture during my last half this September at Maritime Race Weekend which was just named the best race in Canada! Way to go, you definitely deserve that golden sneaker award! It's a great picture but it just didn't make the cut for that race recap. It's exactly the picture that you would... Continue Reading →

Weekend Motivation 119

Some of you keeners may have picked up on the fact that I haven't been running lately. Since September My left foot/ankle has been acting weird.
