Happy New Year!!! After a string of some wonderful days of running, I woke up on New Year’s Eve with a headache, congestion and general body aching that always indicates the start of something more serious. Stupidly, I forced myself through my first brick workout in months – 45 min on the trainer followed by […]

Can a Dream Be Too Big?

Best race ever.

Spring Racing Decisions

Rock 'n' Roll USA
