Half Marathon Training Update + My Long Run Breakfast Recipe Video

Last week, I went to two different classes that had child care for little ones like Tommy. It was awesome but that means, I wasn’t running. Since I either need to wake up before Nick goes to work (and pump before I leave) and run in the dark or go after work when it’s time […]
