Dragon Trails (Part 2)

So back on July 1st of 2021, I injured myself (strained calf) just before the start of a 5K night race. I was stubborn and hobbled through the race anyway. The next night was the Chupacabra 10K Night Trail race, so I switched it to the 5K. Deep down I think I knew this was…

Marathon #3

The San Antonio Rock’n’Roll Marathon made its return this year. 😎 After training for it last year, it was postponed to 2021. I worried about getting my hopes up again this year and I had a few setbacks and a couple of injuries over the summer. But I had plenty of time to recover. I…
