Weekly Roundup 9.30.12

Yeehaw, gals, we had a fantastic week!


What on earth is the Weekly Roundup doing on a Sunday, you ask? And Sunday night, no less!?

Well, cowgirls, Cinnamon was not feeling so hot last week, and life happened this weekend, so apologies for getting it late in the day.  However, Salty and I have been discussing the possibility for the Weekly Roundup to happen on Sundays instead of Fridays to include any content we may have over the weekends.  Let us know in the comments what you think!

Cinnamon made Salty Running, takes lots of pictures and drinks lots of coffee. By day she's a camera assistant for films and tv in New York, and by night she's on a quest for zen in the 10k. Her writing is a mix of satirical humor, finding wholeness as an average runner, cheering for runners at all paces and more.
