The Week Before

One week until my second half marathon! If you’ve been reading (it’s okay if you haven’t, promise), you know that I have been dealing with plantar fasciitis and IT Band problems, so my training hasn’t been as intense as I originally planned. As I start planning my week out, I wanted to consult the experts…

Happy Anniversary, Mean Girls!
