Just noticed for the first time my marathon countdown clock changed from months to days! 😅😅😅 and notta lotta days. The sun has just begun setting on my training as the the final 8 weeks set in. Wish me luck! Photo: location of mile 12 of 17 yesterday. Loved it. That is all. Carry on.

I want to talk about the importance of cross training today because not only is it super good for you, but it keeps … Continue reading cross training
