I was "Sally the Runner" - I was determined, committed, and focused to finish running. My running friends pooped out on me - I still ran. My napping friends tried…Read more Fake it until you make it
I love the fresh start of January. One week in and loved meeting my goals every day. January means crowded gyms. I'm an introvert at heart - I love my workouts by myself, but also have learned that I need group classes as well. I was brave and did 3 different (crowded) classes last week…Read more Crowded Gyms
