IJR - Running with Missie is nothing short of a ball! She is totally dedicated to being the best she can be for her first marathon in Ogden!!!

Is Missie on the Blog?
From Tom Slick on Fri, Feb 06, 2015 at 08:42:48 from 126.96.36.199
IJR - Missie tells me she's not a blog kinda person. I'm hoping after her first "Mary" I can get her on the FRB with all the rest of us crazy running people!!!

Tell her to get on the blog. The motivation from others is amazing support for us. It attribute it to getting me to all my PRs. No way I would have ever gone sub 3 without it. But don't tell her about the part were I thought she was your dog. :) I don't want her coming and beating me up or anything.
