The Rundown: Don’t Call it A Comeback

It's been a beat but I'm back...for now. Between grad school taking over everything, training and racing a half marathon last weekend and life in general, I haven't made time to write here until now. Let's see how much I can cram into this post before I disappear into...

The Rundown – Getting Schooled

It's been a beat since I wrote a rundown and in the time between I have been getting schooled! Not just by starting my first official class of my master's degree in clinical mental health counseling, but in so many other ways. Also, my hair is getting grey-er... WEEK...
