Keys 100 Recap

Wow, where do I even begin? This year’s race was SO different than the last time I ran with a team (in 2009). We were more trained, better equipped for during-race needs, had a full team (in 2009 we had a 6 man team of 5), and had a driver! 662 more words

Who are you? Where have you been?

Runaway bridezilla

Oh no. I’ve become what I always insisted I would never be. I’ve become a bridezilla.

I can’t stop talking about it; even when I try to change the subject, inevitably the discussion swerves back in that direction. 927 more words
