Workouts From Last Week


It’s amazing what early sunrises, warm weather, and the beach can do for my running mood. I’m so much more likely to run longer, more often, and even faster in the summer although I’m hoping that come fall, I still want to run as much as I do during the warmer months. While so many […]
