Favorite Runs – Races – Training – Photo Bombing in 2014


As we get older, the hours pass quicker,  days get shorter, weeks fly bye and the pages of the calendar turn over faster then we ever thought possible.  You can’t stop it…you can’t slow it down, you can only hold on and go for the ride run.

2014 was epic running year for me.  As I sit back and remember the 2014 running season, these are the runs that stood out the most. (I stole this idea from a great blog at runladylike)

January:  A 50 mile training run with friends. Read more about the race/run here:
