Since we moved out to the beach in June, I've been eating all the wrong things. I also discovered some new-to-me tastes that I like…too much. I never used ... Read more

One such route is down the line of warehouses, through the parking lot, around the next building over, and back. But, see, I'm slow. Turtle slow. When I run on my own, I do run/walk interval...
