The countdown is on, running and racing, plus some fantastic food finds

It’s time to get serious…the countdown to the Fargo Half-Marathon is on. There is a countdown timer on the website and I have to admit, it kind of freaked me out. 32 days. THIRTY-TWO DAYS! How the heck did that happen? I’m not ready. At least I don’t think so.
