Last night I finally got a bunch of bulbs into the ground – about 50 or 60 of them.

I never thought I could do it – in fact, the thought never crossed my mind in the first place. It’s amazing to me that now I have actually run an entire 14 miles. It was probably the hardest run so far – my knees were killing me and I was just plain exhausted (probably […]
