Screen shot 2015-04-27 at 12.35.37 PM

Hey, guys! It's going to take me a couple of days to write the full recap of yesterday's New Jersey Marathon (mainly because I'm suffering from my usual bout of post-marathon exhaustion right now, haha), but I did want to drop in and announce that Todd and I successfully completed my 5th/his 4th … [Read more...]

So, I ventured into the city to attend the New York City Marathon expo yesterday. I think that kind of makes this whole thing real! I can't believe it's almost here.
