The Chafing Survey

Hello, my name is Nicole, and I have a chafing problem.

Lessons Learned: Nike Half Marathon 2014

I firmly believe in the veracity of the fortunes in fortune cookies and I’m not just saying that because I eat so much Chinese food when I’m home in NJ that I can pick and choose my relevant fortune for a wide variety of options (there’s nothing I love more than the crunchy string beans … Continue reading

I know everyone is all, “we’re all Boston runners at heart” but I’m not a Boston runner at heart. I don’t even know what the fuck that means to be totally honest. If I can’t qualify, no, I am not a Boston runner. I don’t run in that city, I don’t run their marathon, so … Continue reading
