Stone Cat

So, you know you haven’t blogged in a VERY long time when you have trouble logging on… This past weekend I ran the Stone Cat trail marathon just outside Boston. What a solid event!! It started super early, but the 50 milers had a good chance to finish in daylight, aid stations were stocked to…

The Aftermath

You know what a really good blog post has??  Pictures! This one doesn’t have any and really if Jodi hadn’t taken any pictures at the 80k race, that blog wouldn’t have had any pictures either!  We (hubby and I) are pretty bad at taking pictures.
