The Psychological Thin Line
This post is late, by my standards, and YOU DON'T CARE AND NEITHER DO I. I ran 16.2 miles last Sunday. 13.1 of those miles were with Kristin, who is amazing and I love her. The Medina Half Marathon course was the focus for most of our morning. Kristin and I...

Trails Are the Answer
I'm amping up the mileage, Peeps. Last week was a fallback week--13 miles. This week I intended to return to 16 miles, possibly do 17, but there was a weird parking problem.  All the trailhead parking lots were closed at 8:00, when I intended to put in poss...
