Fog and coffee.

It’s Christmas Eve morning.  There is a thick blanket of fog outside – no beautiful, fluffy snow this year.  Good thing Santa has Rudolph.

Wow. Part II.

Finally finding a minute (literally, there hasn’t been a moment in the past week or so) to sit down and start writing about our evening run from a couple of weeks ago, Red Moon Trail Run. We made it home in one piece from the ultra event.  Knowing that we needed to eat something, even […]
