January 2020 Training Recap

January was filled with ups and downs, successes and opportunities for improvement. My plans and goals changed throughout the month and I adapted to them.

Reviving a tradition.

On January 1, 2021 at midnight instead of popping a bottle of champagne, I will be logging onto my computer to register for the Detroit Free Press Marathon. Over the last weeks, Detroit Free Press Marathon has been releasing information about their 2021 plan. Up until these announcements, I had sworn off signing up for… Continue reading Reviving a tradition.
