Mind Over Miles
(As of early 2013,) Farin Montanez is a 25-year-old mom of two who started running — after a decade-long hiatus — in November. “Mind over miles” chronicles her training for the Santa Rosa Marathon. She can be reached at farin at maderatribune.net. Follow her on Instagram at mind_over_miles.
