With my tiny life addition and my body changes related to that new addition, I've been trying to come up with reasonable goals for running. My previous goals (Boston or bust!) are on hold while I prioritize the little guy. But that doesn't mean I can't have...

I won another 5k. I really need to live here forever so I can fancy myself an elite runner for the rest of my days. This is a small 5K and I'm so glad it's what I ended up doing for my triumphant return to racing. My dad came to watch D and be our photograp...
