I Can’t Go Running If I Have to Go Skiing

Oh Deer, Dogs! Perilous Running in Bend


I did go running today. And I went yesterday too. I think that’s four days in a row, but who’s counting, besides me? Seems like it’s getting a tiny bit easier. But I need new shoes now. I need to figure out what I get after running for 30 days in a row. Ideas? Today […]
