The Slow Runner Chronicles – Episode 1

I don’t think of myself as “a runner” so much as “a guy who runs”. I’m mostly a fair-weather runner.  I’ve been doing it for about a decade now and I try to get out every second day or so for about 5 kilometers. For a busy person, I think that’s a time-friendly but sufficiently … Read more ›
