Ah, I love a good double meaning! This weekend I’m registered for the Gasparilla Lime Challenge (thanks Bibrave). I just didn’t have it in me this year to tackle the half marathon so instead I’m doing the 15K on Saturday and the 8K on Sunday. The real challenge for me will be accepting that I’veContinue reading “The Gasparilla Challenge”

Race Report – St. Pete Run Fest
