21st July – Dashinista and LactateDawns go running up a mountain

No more races for 2012! I picked up an injury to my foot during the mountain adventure which meant that I had to pull out of several races. My goal for the rest of the year is to rehab fully and build my fitness base so that I can come back like Kanye and Daft Punk next year – harder, better, faster, stronger.
