Build weeks continue, in which I am saved by massage therapy

9 mile burn

Yes, I managed my nine miler today. Our “hurricane”  Tropical Storm is turning into a Non-event for us.  This is of course simply because I purchased the requisite hurricane supplies.  Every time I get in the least bit prepared, Nothing happens. I had an inkling of this because when I was running today, I saw …
