Running Plans And Otherwise

It’s been a couple of weeks since I ran. I was hoping to resume last week but recovering from my not-a-glamp camping trip took the better part of a couple of days and then the next few days got so busy what with trying to catch up on all that I had missed. Hopefully, this…
