Welcome to this week’s summary of posts here at Running with Miles! It was a rough week for me since I was sick pretty much the whole week. That made it hard to get excited about some things with travel, miles, and points – of course, a nice 100K bonus offer could have snapped me out of it. Maybe. Anyway, on the mend and looking forward to a better week!
