Achievement Whore

I lived up to my nickname, Nerdbear, this evening. I remembered about 8pm that I needed to run 3.5 miles to get the National Park achievement on my Apple Watch that is available today only. So I promptly put on my shoes and ran 3.7 miles.

Beginning a New Chapter

  I started attending a run club clinic ran by The Underground Lab (UGL) last month. A friend of mine posted about it on Facebook so I wanted to give it a try. I had no formal running training and figured if I was going to continue running for exercise I really needed some basic instruction. […]
