Recovery Week

Greetings, Tribe! This week has been all about recovery. After running the Chicago Marathon, I definitely needed some R&R. Now, that doesn’t mean I stop moving, but I just move a lot less.

A sense of peace washed over me. Our hotel was about as French as they come. They even left us this … Continue reading France, Part Deux
