Happy Global Running Day

June 7 is Global Running Day and I celebrated by running an easy 5K on the treadmill after lifting weights.  I restarted my running journey last month after I signed up for a half marathon that will take place in 2018!  Luckily, my workout plans since January have included a little bit of running (intervals, […] Read more…
