A MONTH OF TRAINING

Wow! I can’t believe it has been almost a month since I started with my running coach. I started this with no immediate

OFF THE BEATEN PATH – COMPASSION

Many of you who follow me are from the US. Some of you are not, but you are likely aware of what the US has been facing as a nation. There is no country who wasn’t built on the backs of others. But America…
