Staying Focused and Staying POSITIVE- Spring Fling 5k 2017

When it comes to racing I tend to be a creature of habit.  2017 marked my 5th consecutive year of running the Cabot Spring Fling 5k.  Three of these years have been within 2-3 weeks of finishing the Little Rock Marathon but it’s just hard to pass up this one since it’s only 30 minutes from our house and it’s
