My 2019…

I enjoy not celebrating Christmas.  Not getting caught up in the hustle of it all allows me to have a bit of clear head space to think about the upcoming year. I don’t do goals, but there are things I would like to keep plugging away at in 2019… Run + exercise more I ran

Running Goals

I’ve been running for about 5 years now.  Though I didn’t really run when I was pregnant with my last two.  I’m super proud of myself for making it a habit of mine. In 2016 I ran just over 300 miles. In 2017, I’m not sure exactly, but not that much due to being pregnant.

I found this article interesting.  In a time when companies are so obsessed with stats and direct links, it feels that people lose their way in what is valuable from a marketing perspective. It’s really not a surprise that podcast advertising doesn’t lead to direct sign ups, but over time it can be a great
