The Goodness of Running – Race Week!

The Goodness of Running – Race Week!

It’s officially less than a week to the big day! It’s been 9 years since my last Boston Marathon. For whatever reason, even though I’ve qualified over the years, I’ve chosen to run other races or take other trips.

I kept repeating to myself, “It only hurts up to a certain point, and then it doesn’t get any worse.” A good reminder for race day! This little … Read More
