As the year comes to a close, I am more than excited to get cracking on the fun stuff coming in 2013. Half marathon training and race, Planning a two week long road trip along historic Rt. 66 to the Grand Canyon (June!) and with good fortune more teaching spots and travel- along with more consistent blogging!
Happy New year friends!
