I’m sorry for the delay in posting! I just feel like time get aways from me so quickly these days, especially with my running schedule. On Saturday I ran 10 miles, which is my longest run to date! It was so difficult. I woke up at 7, which was my first mistake, and it was […]

Happy Wednesday everyone! This weekend Brock and I finally took Basquiat out and we went hiking at Devil’s Den, which is a state park only 30 minutes away from where we live. It’s been so hot the past few weekends we have avoided it, but Sunday wasn’t too bad! We packed up some adult beverages […]
