5 Highlights from The Lodge at Woodloch


This year I really wanted to do something special for my mom and my nana for their birthdays since they both help me out so much with Baylee.  Their Birthdays are both actually on the same day, so that made planning easy.  I wanted to go someplace we could get to by car and something that would be suitable and safe for the elderly.  I Googled best Resort and Spas on the East Coast and The Lodge at Woodloch kept coming up as the number one option.

Boston Bound

I got my news kicks and I am ready to run Boston....or am I?

I cant believe Boston is coming up next weekend. You think you have so much time after you qualify to train and prepare for this big event, and then just like that it sneaks up on you.



Since there is so much time between when you qualify until race day there are many obstacles that may arise. Luckily
