Happy Friday everybody! Got any big plans for the weekend? I have a full one ahead — tonight: Livefit day 59, hanging out with my friend Stephanie from high school who’s in town for Easter; tomorrow: getting my oil changed, helping a friend move, working on a TON of zip bags for an upcoming sale […]
Today is my first day at ISU. Which means no more commute and oddly enough that I have to get up EARLIER than before to get to work. I was leaving Ames to get to Drake at 8:15ish but I have to be at work by 8 today. Let’s see how I do. Also, I’m […]

It’s the 100th Drake Relays this week…and I can’t run. Oh the irony. I had planned on the Drake Relays on the Roads Half Marathon to be my “comeback” race. Now I’m not sure when that will be if ever. My hip had started to get better…but suddenly it relapsed a few days ago and […]
