You might say I’ve been a little bit off the map the past couple weeks.  The last time I checked in, I was finishing up the final stages of my marathon training cycle, preparing for the amazing North Olympic Discovery Marathon in hopes of crushing my marathon PR time of 3:59:55.  Fast forward a couple… Read More »
