It’s Friday, so I’m linking up with Running on Happy and Fairytales and Fitness for Friday Five 2.0. This week’s topic is “Running Friends/Family.” Picking five favorite races was tough, narrowing down to five running friends (or even groups of running friends) would be impossible. Since it’s “Happiness Happens Month,” and because runner friends make me happy, I’m going with “5 Keys Skills to Practice…
