A Snowy Half Marathon Race Report

No, I did not actually run a race. Rather, I spent the morning volunteering at the awesome High Cloud Snapple Half Marathon with other members of the 2011 Dream Team. Here’s a version of the report I wrote for the High Cloud blog: High Cloud’s first big event of the year was the High Cloud … Continue reading
