Uh oh. Another week where I haven’t taken any pictures… I love these Thinking Out Loud posts because I can write about anything, but they’re definitely difficult when I have no picture to remind myself of what’s been going on this week!
Week #14 of marathon training was one of the hardest weeks for me so far. Even though it was supposed to be a step back week between the two toughest weeks of training.
