Hi Caroline. Thanks for joining my journey of running through life. What a great time to catch up with you after reading your 50 things posts I feel like I "know" a bit about you.
Your boys are handson little guys! I am sure you are making them very proud with your running and fitness, well setting a great example at least.
I will look forward to catching up on your journey.
