2. Life is unpredictable. You might as well roll with it.

3. A win is a win!

This is coming to you from Midway, Utah, where the US Cross Country Nationals is well under way. It has been quite chilly the past few days, but I’m not complaining one bit, because I would take this over rain any day! Continue Reading ›
