Dog Park Exploration

We've visited the Blackwell Forest Preserve twice now, which is good for… Continue reading Dog Park Exploration

Badge of Honor

"All endurance sports are about continuing when it feels as if you have nothing left, when everything aches, when you feel done-but you're not. You have to go beyond the numbers that, like certain birthdays for some people, just seem intrinsically daunting: fifty miles, one hundred miles, one thousand miles, two thousand miles, and random points… Continue reading Badge of Honor
