My (Excessive) Nightly Wind-Down Routine

Marathons are Gross: Chicago Marathon 2018

Running a marathon is gross for so many reasons. The blisters, the sweat, the chafing. There’s also the digestive issues and the sheer amount of food you need to consume in order to fuel over four hours of running. Imagine a laundry basket filled with two weeks of sweaty running clothes in August. It’s not […]
