A Full Blown Addiction.

Anyone who says running is cheap (or easy) is a bold freakin’ liar. Okay, running may come easy for some. But folks, I don’t care who you are… this sh*t ain’t cheap. A few years ago, when I was trying to find my legs, (i.e. started running), I laced up my lawn mowing shoes, pulled […]
