RunDisney “In Training” Cover Photos

Originally posted on Leah Elizabeth:
I like to update my Facebook cover photo to reflect my next race. The problem is, a lot of races don’t have the appropriate graphics for this. Personally, I’m not a fan of the cover RunDisney makes, so I put my skills to good use and made a few for…

My year of running fearlessly: 2016

My year of running fearlessly: 2016 I say ‘My year of running fearlessly’ due to the fact this was the year I really discovered the world of running, outside of running in my neighborhood casually.

Top 5 Tuesday: Top 5Ks I Want to Run
