  1. I love your hand knit hat. You are clearly very talented at knitting! Congrats on your monthly mileage….pretty sure you beat mine. February is a big month for me with more marathon training and the Princess Half Marathon in Florida with my daughter and sister!


  2. 82 miles is hardly slacking! I was at half of that – partially due to illness, partially due to not yet time to ramp it up – now it’s time & I was just thinking how painful it was to just sit before/ after my last half – but not now! Feeling good. But it’s always easy to feel strong after slowing it down for a while.


  3. Glad you’re feeling good. It’s quality not quantity sometimes. Enjoy your time away form the arctic chill. Let’s run together when you get back.
