Off to a slow start…

Not gonna lie, yesterday’s first training run wasn’t the most encouraging start to marathon training. Three miles of pure hell. I don’t know how I’m going to train through a Cincinnati summer. It was...

18 weeks to October 12th!

Today is my wedding day…in one year. I remember when we got engaged in March, May still felt so far away. It has flown by, and I haven’t planned a thing, and it makes...

Hurrah, my first real blog. I thought this might be a fun way to keep in touch with my friends and family, and anyone who’s interested in what’s going on in my life. It’s...
