Happy birthday to me! I woke up to 34 with a 10 mile run, perhaps my longest in two years, in preparation for the New York City Marathon (Nov 2018). I've long considered myself an avid runner. From 5 and 10ks to my first 10 miler in my early 20s, to trail running through my … Continue reading NYC Marathon 2018
