A Runner’s Two Cents by Rachel

April 18, 2012

My Hero!!

October 6, 2010

When Adam and I first met we were kids. Eleven years ago our ideals and plans were very different than they are today. At first I was embarrassed to be dating a guy who hadn’t gone to college; after all, I was college bound and planned on dating a guy with alpha beta whatever attached to his name rather than […]
