Daily Run Photo: 14/5/2014 Tonight was our Track and Field Banquet. I’ve never been MVP for anything until tonight, but the best part was the photo frame from sweet teammates.

Daily Run Photo: 11/5/2014 Finally listened to my body and ended my log run a little early after trouble with my hip. I’m learning, slowly. Also, Portland is pretty good at sunsets.

Daily Run Photo: 9/5/2014 (Inspired by my Mum’s bunny obsession) Yesterday’s emergency root canal left me feeling weak, but made it through a 5 mile tempo and some strides motivated by a much needed afternoon at a local bakery with a friend. Learning to celebrate and reward the small things.

Daily Run Photo: 6/5/2014 Finally got grades for Spring semester, three A’s for my second to last semester of grad school. Now just have to shake off this fatigue and achy feeling. Nothing sleep, good food and coffee, plus some sunshine running won’t cure.
