Alec said afterwards that he's not running with me again :-)

No slowing down at the top of the hill this time! I didn't let those guys even THINK about it.

Awesome! Thanks Jake! :)

LOVED the article!!! Interestingly enough I considered doing my doctoral project on female athlete triad syndrome. I have had a few stress fractures and each time that topic came up. This is exactly what I needed to read right now with Sophia running so much and being at that critical age. So THANK YOU!!! :)
