I pulled a muscle and the race is two days away!

It’s been a while since my last post, so sorry I have just had a ton going on! Let’s start out with the fact that I pulled a groin muscle a few weeks ago at the gym……ugh, so discouraging. I went to use one of those thigh machines, the one that you sit on and squeeze…

Easter Post

Easter was great! I found a few recipes online that I tried out for the first time. I think everything turned out wonderfully. If I may vent for a moment though….I know that everyone has different tastes, etc. etc. And by no means do I expect everyone to be vegan (although the world would be…
