While I had absolutely no intention of this being an every other month thing, I just did not get around to posting one for February. Too much other content, too little time! To make it up to you – my favorite Badass Running Buddies – I will most likely feature 2 other badass runner this month, and then continue with the once a month streak.
The power of community is so amazing! I have been following CJ for awhile now on Instagram and he is also now a part of my Facebook running community. He’s been a great source for running info to our group and he is constantly sharing is runs and motivating others to get out the door!
