2014 Race Calendar

Truthfully, I am not supposed to even THINK about racing until I can run 5-10 miles and not get hurt. Well..  In my defense, a little thinking can not hurt.  In fact, it kind of takes the sting out of this years mess.  If I look at the year from January to January, I did …

Hello world!

Well howdy!  it’s a new blog for me.  I am trying to kind of keep some things separate from my other blog, as the repeated entries about running can be boring to those who don’t run.  I regret that this entry, the first one…is not some slick introduction- designed to make you want to follow …
