Group running: I’m a fan now.

The past two Saturdays, I ran with other human beings and I actually enjoyed it. This was a special moment, as y’all know how I most enjoy my running solo because it’s my “me” time. I get lost in my thoughts, rock out to my tunes, and don’t have to worry about slowing anybody down. I …

2013: The Best Worst Year of My Life
