Something that has been on my mind is life energy… The beginning of the week was a bit emotional for me as I was circling through negative thoughts over a situation.

I’m just jumping straight to the point: my 11th half marathon was tougher than the 10 before it combined.

This week can be summed up with LOTS OF PARTYING. There were a ton of random occasions back to back, and by the end of the week, I had drank enough for the entire month. Before getting to the highlights reel, I have some pretty big news…I FINALLY signed up for a Spring race! A … More A week of partying + my next race!
