2015 Running Goals Update

Today, I’m linking up with Erika, Patty, and April for their weekly link-up called Tuesdays on the Run.  Typically, I love this type of post.  It’s always fun to look back and see how far you have come and all the progress you are making towards your goals….

Sigh… Week #7.  August 4 – 10 Monday:   3.18 Miles (Easy) – 31:45/9:59 – It felt really good to get the blood flowing after Beach to Beacon.  This loop from my office around West Point’s campus provides a couple nice climbs.  I’m trying to make more of an effort to bring my {Read More}
