On Garmin-Free Running

After the Las Vegas Half Marathon, I went on and on about how I was discouraged with racing. My brain wanted to go fast, but my legs couldn’t keep up. How dare they not work in perfect harmony, right? Rude. I never lost my love for running — that wasn’t the problem. I friggin’ love […]
