Christmas 2015

It’s amazing how much a difference a day can make. Yesterday was Christmas Eve, and it was a bit overwhelming. All the kids seemed to have too much stored energy and it was coming out and not always in the best ways. There was lots of bickering and arguing going on. It was a busyContinue reading “Christmas 2015”

Fitbit vs Runkeeper

This year after the race I decidedContinue reading “New Running Goal”
