Grandma’s Goals (and outfit)!

In case you are spectating or running Grandma's and looking for me, I'll be in green and black, with a touch of my signature pink (of course!) in the shorts and on my head! There is also runner tracking available until Friday night at 9:00 p.m. (though in the past I think the text/email tracking …

Good Fortune

Do you believe in fortunes? You know, the ones that you get from Chinese fortune cookies at the end of a meal?  I wouldn't say that I believe in them, per se.  Like I don't think that they are the be all and end all.  I don't think that what is written in them is …
