Run Your Heart Out

      10 Comments on Run Your Heart Out

It’s no secret that I’ve been struggling through my training for October’s 1/2 marathon in Des Moines.

You may have noticed that I’ve been running more lately and while they haven’t been long runs, they have been more frequent, including back to back days. While for some that may not be something spectacular, for me it’s a sign of good things to come.  A sign that my lungs are getting stronger and I’m not allowing my asthma… Read more »

Excuse me!? Where did May go?! Did you realize today’s the last day of the month?! …yeah, me neither.  This month flew by! …so did this week! While I thought it was Friday when I woke up Thursday morning, by the end of Thursday I thought it was Wednesday.  Don’t try to figure that one out.   Regardless, it is… Read more »
