I know it’s already March 20, but it’s been a pretty busy month, so I’m wrapping up my February running today. I ran 95 miles. It’s always nice to hit 100, but I was happy with 95.

Follow @vanessajunkin After seven hours and 48 minutes of running and walking, I crossed the finish line and happily accepted my finisher mug at the Algonquin 50K.
