Hey flrunners, sorry it has been a while since my last post, but that is not to say that little has been going on. The middle portion of my season has been a little rocky to say the least. Heading into the flrunners.com Invitational back at the start of the month, I got sick and really wasn't able to shake it off fully for about two weeks. Regardless, I still should have ran better than how I did in that race, but I was just never able to find a rhythm.
