Runfessions of a Careless Walker and a Forgetful Stretcher

~ Runfessions ~ A collection of statements admitting that one is guilty of a variety of running crimes…   It’s time again to join in on the fun and clear my conscience of recent running, biking, fitness, nutrition, and life in general faux pas.
