Off to the races!

… Well, almost
I can officially say I will be taking part in the lululemon Seawheeze half marathon in Aug. There is no turning back and I cannot fall of the bandwagon.

At least I won’t be all alone.

Even if you have not ran a race a little encouragement and motivation will help too 🙂

Have a fantastic day!

In realizing this I decided what better way to start running again than to participate in this amazing event. Continue reading
