2015 Philadelphia Marathon Race Recap

Philly was my… 7th marathon? I think [counts on fingers] Yup, 7th.  I genuinely never thought in a million years I’d need another (or any) hand to count the number of marathons I’ve done.  I signed up on a whim because Philly was on my 30th birthday (exact day, yes, it actually was indeed my … Continue reading

You want me to run where?
