7.5 miles Is this what I was supposed to see this morning? I did catch views of the moon before it went into the clouds and then behind the large colorful building next to the bridge. I arrived a few minutes later, no love from the traffic lights on Blue Heron Boulevard I guess. I … Continue reading Blue moon recovery run

I get Jen Q. interested in this idea, she runs the 2 warm up laps with me, then the first 3 miles. And when she sprints up- she does … Continue reading Encouraging pain for others!
