Super Bowl run day

I’d just like to see the Patriots lose, is that so much to ask? I didn’t love the game, but I loved my run this afternoon before the game. It marked my first four-run week in a couple months and with 16 miles it’s my longest mileage in a while too! Runs and pictures like […]

Beautiful January day

Funny how 30 degrees and sunny can feel balmy, but today it did! After all the cruddy weather this past week, I was looking forward to getting outside today! I ran my favorite route to Lake Waubesa and back, six miles! I stopped for pics in the middle. I wanted to walk out on the […]

2015 running wrap up
