    Hey Dorothy! I’m running a half tomorrow and was looking for clever ways to decorate my shirt so strangers will cheer for me…. and somehow randomly came across your blog. We ran together my freshman year at drew! You look exactly the same! This is an awesome blog. Hope you’re well.

I love a good comment!
