Getting back on the blog wagon

It sure has been a while since my last post. Life has definitely sped up (in a good way) and I just let blogging slip through the cracks. I am still in the process of figuring out what kind of style blog I want and what content I want to focus on. Over thinking all of this has caused me to just avoid it all together.

My race experiences and tips for race day will come later 🙂
