The grass is always greener on the other side right? For the last four and a half months I have been pining over running. There were times when I wondered if I would ever be fixed, if I would ever pound the pavement again. Due to tearing my plantar fascia (a ligament in your foot) … More What’s So Good About Running Anyway?
I saw a post on Instagram over the weekend that really resonated with me. Think about it. Who do you encounter in a day, and what affect do you have on their lives?
