Running Lizard

Chicago, Illinois
Running Lizard is my attempt to keep track of my training and keep a record of the random things I do in between runs!  I am obsessed with taking pictures ("photo journaling" as my friends and I like to call it), so the blog is a perfect place to house all my pics! Happy Running!
