Running and Confidence

I love strava. I knew I would when everyone was all over it and I wasn't using it yet. I didn't track my runs when I was pregnant so started with it after Louis. Such a good way to track miles. At the end of this post, you'll see my last four weeks of workouts. Thanks to strava that was easy to throw in here.I took a whole week off to give my hip that had been bothering me a rest and had … [Read more...]

Dances with Dirt & What Now

I got to join the Quaff On girls relay team last weekend for Dances with Dirt. I was thinking of doing the half so when they asked me to be on their team, I thought this would be much better than just doing the half by myself. These girls are fast and I was definitely the weak link on my team.
