Marathon Monday: Week #2…..The Pain Train

So this second week of training was tough. I hit all my mileage, but it was a struggle. Still, I’m counting it a win for not missing any miles. But I’d be lying if I didn’t say it messed with my head a bit, as it’s only week 2. I have a ridiculously long way […]
