Oh, hi! I’m Michelle, remember me? I realize that I have neglected the blog as of late. I’ve been writing each week but not posting. I’m combining the last three weeks into 1. If you all knew the amount of stress I’m under right now, you’d completely understand why my blog has been of least… Continue reading Wineglass Marathon Training week 3 & 4 & 5
2 weeks update because, well, travel. Travelling up to New York was both fun and exhausting but the girls made some great memories with family and I’m glad we had the opportunity to go up there.

I have scraped all “goals” from any 5k, 10k, or half marathon that falls before my Marathon. Those… Continue reading 180 days till Chicago- My birthday week!
