Ode to my Feet

Ugh.  My poor, poor, pitiful feet.  My feet – a sight for sore eyes.  Scarred, peeling, blackened toe nails, missing toe nails, long toes, short toes, nail fungus (shh) and did I mention BIG?!  I’m not sure about your feet, but the ones attached to the end of my legs are U.G.L.Y.  When I started dating my husband, he asked …

I often think back to when my running journey began so that I can remember fully what it is like to be at the beginning of it all. I literally started from nothing. In high school I couldn’t even make it through the 2400m, I was picked last for every activity, and skipped out when ever I could. On a treadmill, I could not last more than a minute, without …
