Half marathon training attempt

In January, I ran the Dopey Challenge and it was incredible. Little did I know though that the highlight of my 2015 racing would happen only 2 weeks into the year and go downhill from there. As I’m sure you guessed due to the quietness on this space, I haven’t been racing ....more
