Disclaimer: This post contains affiliate links   Spring Fever in the Making It may have been short-lived, but this past week’s mild weather gave me a whooping dose of spring fever after spending some time outside gardening, running in shorts, and spotting a few Robins.

Disclaimer: This post contains affiliate links…   Chugging Along Until Serious Training Needs to Begin It’s that time of year when the weather isn’t always inviting to be outside. Currently it’s 13° (feels like 7°) and yesterday’s high didn’t get above a blustery 26°, even though we only got about an inch of snow from […]

Race Day Rain Wanting to kick 2022 off with a grand start, I texted my friends to see if they wanted to join in running the New Day New Year 5K we’d last run in 2019. Everyone was game and we registered in mid-December. Unfortunately, the rain forecasted all week showed up as expected on […]
