10 Weeks Until Mercer Island Half Marathon 2016

This week was my first week at my new job. The job itself is great, it’s just getting there and back that’s the frustrating part. It’s in Bellevue, where my last job was. But unfortunately, I still live in Tacoma. So I have to wake up super early to get my morning workout in before […]
