We Did It – Half Marathon Part I

Music Prepping

Ready for my Playlist? Yeah you are. I know I am!  I literally listen to this and get SO jazzed for the half, GAH. Cannot wait!  I seriously listen to the strangest music when I run.. but I mean, it works! Why change a good thing?  ..and don’t actually pay attention to the lyrics for . . .

What Not To Do During Taper Week

Really. I mean, I KNOW I shouldn’t be doing anything out of the ordinary since Amy and I are running in FIVE DAYS, but where’s the fun in that? So yesterday I purchased some new running duds, and I don’t plan on wearing them until race day. I gotta keep them fresh ya know? I . . .

The Perfect Day

Welp, the birthday celebrations continue over here on the west coast! Yesterday was Amy’s 25th Birthday!
