Chick-Fil-A and Haile

May 29, 2008

Week #1,000,000; Wednesday: Tuesday I didn’t run because agreed to do a humongous freelance writing project at the last minute; and so, I tried to make up for it on my Wednesday run.  Monday it felt good to get back into running (to be honest I have no idea why I let myself go three […]
