Things were going so well. I was feeling on top of my game. My muscles were tired and sore, but I felt like getting to day 75 would be no problem. Then I hit a wall. I was feeling off. In the mornings, it was hard to get out of bed because my body was… Continue reading Why I Quit 75 Hard

When I look back at 2016, a lot of great things happened: I ran my second marathon. I also got to meet an online friend in person and we ran the marathon together. It was pretty damn epic.
