lessons from 31 runs – a #mileadaymay recap

One Mile. Every day. For one month. No – it’s not a lot (or at least it didn’t seem like a lot) when our international brand coordinator, Allessia, set off on a 31-day running challenge (also known as #mileadaymay) but she ended up covering a whole lot of ground and learned a thing or two […]
