Endless Knot Warehouse Sale

The crew surprised me at the starting line with custom made All the Way Ali t-shirts

Without going into too much detail, let me tell you that last week sucked for me personally. I was seriously under the weather and experiencing a very low ebb. I didn’t get to train at all and at some points was pretty convinced that I wouldn’t be able to even walk the Earth Day 5k on Saturday, let alone run it.
