Those Two Monumental Moments

Date: June 12, 2012 at 9:15 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 60

There are always two exciting, monumental, OMG-so-encouraging milestones that happen as I’m coming back from a Crohn’s flare-up. When these things eventually occur, I’m all, “Oh Hell yeah, I’m back, I’m awesome, life is sweet, you can’t stop the beat.” […]

I thought by the time June 6 rolled around this year, I would have profound, witty thoughts to share on National Running Day. Turns out, I really don’t. I love that National Running Day exists because runners are an interesting […]
