  • @larissa3963 back from 2 weeks in Boston, so thankful for this run together
  • Mt Tam summit run #20. Heavy thoughts, heavy heart. For the past 6 or so years Mt Tam has been my sanctuary, my church, my therapist, my playground for adventure. I am constantly evolving as a runner and I feel that it helps to make me a better person. I run to the mountain for different reasons each time and today it was to think about everything that happened yesterday. Much love to everyone touched physically and emotionally by the senseless tragedy at Boston. Drop by the store if you want to talk, want to run, or simply want a hug from all of us. Peace.
