Leading Ladies Marathon race recap

I promised a race recap, so here it is.  It’s been almost 2 weeks so it’s about time that I sit down and write it all out.  This wasn’t quite the race I planned for or trained for but that’s ok….there was a much more valuable lesson in it for me. During the week leading up to […]
