Will you run the Warrior Dash with me this Summer?” At first I hesitated, but I think my fever induced, post fainting state led me to say to myself…Oh, why […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
Let’s veer from fitness for just one moment… Let’s go back to the days when I was barely a mommy (and definitely not a fit one).
