And it begins…

Last Sunday, I had my first run with all the amazing people involved with Team Myles.  I was ready to fail…I was ready to huff and puff and fall and fail.  That’s what I told myself was going to happen.  While I may feel like I am 25 in my head, my hips don’t lie. […]

Race day!

Its so hard to find the right words to try to begin to express the mixture of emotions from race day. When my alarm went off at 5am I already had my Team Myles shirt laid out with the rest of my outfit and gear, breakfast was planned and anything I could have ready was […]
