Last weekend, I returned energized and excited from racing the USATF Masters Outdoor Track National Championships in Michigan.

This post was written in partnership with Inside Tracker, but the opinions in this post are my own. Who knew I would get so excited about getting my blood drawn every three months? It’s powerful information. I’m learning what I am doing right as an athlete and what I need to improve on. As a…
