Just Let Me Run

I was  50 years old and a new vegan last year when I ran my first 5k.  I trained myself and crossed the finish line in 35:47 minutes – ugh, not the 30 minutes or under I’d hoped for but, ok. I’m officially a runner I thought, so I need to upgrade my knowlege of running lingo. I asked…
