Mind Ready, but Body Isn't....an Experiment of One
Tuesday, December 13, 2011      7 comments

I love the saying that as runners we are all "an experiment of one." What works for you might not work for me. And, what works for my friend might not work for you. So, I completed HM#4 on Sunday. For my first 3 HMs, I was fairly sore the r... Read more
