Race Recap: Edinburgh Scotland Half Marathon 2022

Surprise! We did our very first international half marathon! Our philosophy for vacation has always been, "how much stuff can we pack into a trip to make it as crazy as possible." At the end of May, Ellie and I went on an amazing two week voyage to the United Kingdom with our awesome friend [...]
