This week was all about resting and relaxing after last Sunday’s half marathon in Chicago (recap coming this week). There were a couple of walks, two weight lifting sessions, a little yoga, but no running. I’ll hit the trails again on Tuesday after my body has had a little more time to recover… 

Today, in honor of Memorial Day, instead of my usual breakdown of those weekly workouts, I’d like to pause and honor those who have given the ultimate sacrifice so that we might live freely in this beautiful country.

Last Memorial Day, Bill and I walked through Arlington National Cemetery on Memorial Day and gave thanks. It was a somber and humbling experience, something I recommend you do if you ever have the chance.


  • Questions:
  • Have you visited Arlington National Cemetery, or any other military cemetery?
  • What are your Memorial Day plans?
  • Did you race this weekend? 


Have a great week!
