April is unofficially the beginning or race season. If you’ve been looking for ways to get motivated and get back in shape, signing up for a race is sure to help with that! Also, don’t forget the great group run options as well.

My passion for running did not occur until after I started college. As a 2013 college graduate I live and train for half-marathons! Come along with me as I share stories of struggle and triumph from topics such as running to practicing health and wellness. I hope my words inspire you to continue taking steps to live a healthy and fulfilled life.

    The event that you linked to on the 13th (the Spring Fever 5K in Blaine) is from 2013. The 2014 version is this Saturday, March 29th.
