Reason #568 I love living where I live – the Delta Diner. I first dined at this hidden gem after a winter hike several years ago.

Spring Thaw – Lost Creek Falls
I remember it like yesterday. It was spring, 2005 and I had just met this odd duck online named Steve.

But weather is not to blame for my latest and most lackluster race ever. I’ll be frank. This wasn’t my best…… Continue reading Whistelstop Half-Marathon – Race Recap
