Talk to You After the Race!!!

Today was my last half mile repeat day prior to the race and I ran the fastest ever half mile – EVER!!! I ran a 3:04, which is about a 9.8 mph pace. I have never even hit that pace on a treadmill with the incline at zero. So, with that note, I am going…

Warm Running and Massage Time

Happy April, Running Win, and More Disney Pics
