One year ago today, I married my favorite running buddy. I feel so lucky to have found my partner in running and life.

I mean, does this guy love me or what?

If he’s willing to dress like a mouse for you and run a marathon in 80 degrees in a hat and long sleeve shirt, you know it’s love.

He really is my Prince Charming.

Here’s to many more years of running in love with my favorite running buddy: my amazing husband, Phil.
