Happy Marathon Monday! … And Happy Tax Day! I prefer to lean on celebrating Marathon Monday over tax day, it distracts me from the $$$ the government is currently withdrawing from my bank account. Who else is following the #BostonMarathon hashtag on twitter? I’m obsessed so far! The alarm was set early today. Not to more »
