Compression Sleeves to the Rescue

We mentioned in our race recap last week that I’ve been struggling with shin splints. Now, you probably know what shin splints feel like, but I feel like there are definitely different levels of splints you can get and I HAD NO IDEA HOW TRULY BAD THEY COULD GET.

Halloween Hunting

I’ve written before about how much I love looking for Halloween decorations (like most people hunt for Christmas lights and displays) and this year was no exception.

City Sights: December

This year, I went on a couple of outdoor runs looking for pretty lights and didn’t really see a whole lot. That said, I did see and experience something awesome in early December.
