The Spring Fling 5k Race Recap and Breaking 19 Minutes… again!

Coming back from an injury can take a while and it’s hard not to get a little discouraged during the comeback phase.  For the last several months I’ve been comparing myself to where I was last year before the plantar fasciitis started.  My foot has felt good for a while now but my confidence in my ability has not been
