I’d love to say I have a good excuse for neglecting this blog again, but busy is a poor excuse. Don’t you agree? We all have time for the things that are priorities in our life and it’s quite clear this blog hasn’t been a priority. I would like it to be more of a… Continue reading Childhood Cancer Awareness Month 2017

A much belated, but carefully thought (and hopefully engaging) account of race weekend… I last messaged you all on September 11th after arriving safely in Monterey… oh!
