MissyFoy -

Wednesday, July 11, 2012 Last week I was at the Children With Diabetes’ Friends For Life conference in Orlando.

MissyFoy -

After road racing for so many years, I’ve met a lot of people!  My husband frequently comments on how nice everyone is in the running community (he also comments on how neurotic we are, but what the heck).  Some of my running partners have turned out to be my closest friends.  It’s kind of funny that […]

When the Travel Log Trumps the Training Log

MissyFoy -

Well, this has been a summer of travelling.  I won’t bore anyone with the details of all of it – that would bore even me just to recount it all!  But, I’ll hit some of the highlights.  At the end of April, my friend Monique Hanley arrived from Australia.  Monique is a pro cyclist who rides […]
