Friday afternoons are a hard time to go motivate for a run… there’s last minute emails, calls to make, people to meet for happy hour… Anyway, I was on the brink of not going for a run. On the brink only, but finally I just got up from my desk and got changed into running [...]

It was quite cold yesterday morning when I ran at 7.30, still in the ‘burbs’ of Denver. I managed a one-way ish run because my Dad and I were meeting up the road, so that was kind of nice. Even though I was supposed to do two hours, I ran out of time during my [...]
