Happy Monday! It seems like I was just writing a summary post like yesterday but it is already a week! Hopefully, everyone was able to take advantage of any great deals or plan some trips over the past week! Maybe, you were even able to get in a good run or three? 🙂 I am in buildup phase now for my marathon training program which begins in 3 weeks! Getting pumped as I really want to have a fantastic training cycle this time around.
