Can I take a moment to brag? Not necessarily brag but share a new accomplishment for a me; one of those moments when you realize your hard work is paying off.  I had that moment yesterday. You see, I went to the gym, like any other day and busted out my 5 mile run and then started strength training.  I… Read more »
