Afternoon Run: 3.2 miles (10.23/mi)

Sunday Run – 6.6 miles

Today I got in the first post half marathon lake run. I plan on doing this every other week with my friend to gauge how well I’m progressing this spring/summer. I can’t believe it was only October of last year when I tried this run. I started out running a mile, walking a quarter mile, […]
