Last night I went to dinner with my running friends to celebrate my friend Christine’s birthday. I hadn’t seen most of these friends since before my husband left back on my birthday. In January. Sigh. When you’re not running, training and/or racing it’s hard to keep in touch. Of course I’m thankful for social media… Continue reading Bite the bullet
