Introducing: Frag Chat With the Fragrance Chick

So, I started a podcast. That’s a thing. I wanted to give it a few episodes before I started cross-promoting it to make sure it was going to be something I stuck with and that I was a good “fit” for the platform. Well, the latter is questionable, but I’m in it for the foreseeable…

2019 Lameness and Resolutions

I almost considered leaving the title of this post as just “2019” as I couldn’t be bothered to come up with something witty. Then I tacked on the rest because I felt like it still needed some sort of descriptor. Still not witty, but they can’t all be winners. And that’s the winning attitude I…

Half Marathon Training Weeks 6 & 7 and Self-Care Sunday
