Weekly Recap 11/26/17

This was my last week off work before I start my new job. It’s been nice having some downtime but I’m excited about my new position and ready to get started!

Weekly Recap 10/29/17

So a crazy thing happened this week. I signed up for Monumental. Just the half, I mean, I’m not that crazy. Coach Matt sent me an email when he updated my log and said if I was feeling good, we should talk about something I could do while CG is running the full. I wasn’t sure... Continue Reading →
