My husband I decided shortly after running the Disney wine and dine half marathon that we wanted to run another half.

While I can’t give a huge recap of the race from my phone, I do want to share about the race since it’s been almost a month and I’ve not written about it.

I woke up at 4 am, got ready and hit the road to Naperville to meet up with the… Continue reading Naperville Half Marathon 2014 race recap
Today is a new day. My daughter, the tough little cookie she is, is doing fine…I think Mom took it harder than daughter when reality slapped us in the face. But today, after not a lot of sleep, I rolled out of bed and hopped in the shower. It was time to pick up my… Continue reading Naperville Half marathon preparation and packet pick up
