Marathon Monday #4

Marathon Monday #4, otherwise known as fast forward 8 weeks and it’ll be my last Marathon Monday post as it will all be over! Perspective, easier said than done. Last Sunday I managed to do an 18.2 mile run, by myself. My parents had been down visiting, so as a way of getting the run […]
