Day 67: Walking D(r)ead

Remember my post about training for a 5k? It’s hard to try to run in cold, icy conditions when you’re a gimp, so I figured I’d try to keep the momentum by walking. (When I’m ready to pound the pavement again I might invest in the Zombies, Run! 5k training app. It’s supposed make working […]

As much as I’d like to say I hopped in a pickup and drove through the deep […]
