Lift Weights and Get Strong

I decided not to sign up for the No Boundaries program this time around. I thought about signing up and just walking until my knee felt better, but I don’t trust myself. I know I’ll run on it before I’m ready and injure it even more. Instead I’ll keep up with my strength training and…

If Your Knee Hurts Stop

A few weeks ago I ran in the Loteria 5K. If you missed it this year I highly recommend running it next year. It was pouring rain outside the entire time. It was my first time running in the rain and it made me feel like a kid. The rain was almost refreshing it certainly…

Finishing a race

Heights 5K run
