20 Weeks Till the Race – Accountability, Transformation, and Pushing Through Comfort Zones…

20 Weeks Till the Race – Accountability, Transformation, and Pushing Through Comfort Zones… As I sit here the night before the Hogeye Marathon my mind is on one thing…. running. My relationship with running is certainly a love/hate relationship.  I’ve completed 2 half marathons since 2008, a few 10K’s, and I’ve signed up and not completed probably 3 since then.  The reasons vary for signing up and not completing events and those...
