Hey guys. How is your weekend going so far? I don’t normally post on the weekend but I just wanted to check in after take a few days off from my regular blogging schedule. I posted earlier this week about the events that happened in my hometown. I went to write Friday’s blog post and simultaneously watched an interview with one of the victim’s parents… just couldn’t bring myself to sit down and chat about random things after that. Now I’m just sitting here on a Saturday morning with a cup of coffee thinking about life. Anytime one of these shooting happens, I’m … [Read more...]

And the story of someone young and vivacious going about their daily life and suddenly taken from here is a story that is sadly familiar.

The pool. I love to hate it. I hate to love it. I know I went through a period of time where I appreciated swimming but now that I’ve been able to get back on my bike, I kind of don’t love the pool anymore. Actually…. I have secretly been despising it lately. Because why would I want to be inside getting wet when I can be out in the summer air with the breeze in my face? Anyway, last night I guess I appreciated it again… I’m trying to really rest my foot so I’m swapping some of my other cardio sessions for the pool. I’m kind of blah about the whole thing but I … [Read more...]

Hey guys! Happy Monday! How was your weekend? Mine was pretty low key because I worked on Saturday and was on call on Sunday.

I started on Saturday night but made the mistake of also … [Read more...]
