Exercise Changes Everything

Happy Thursday! I hope you all are having a great day so far. The weather predicted lots of storms throughout the day in DC today, but so far today has been beautiful! If only the summer could be like this…but no, soon the humidity will weigh down on our every movement and breath (dramatic, I…

Holy HAMSTRINGS Batman!

Why hello there! Can you believe that Christmas is 11 days away? I can’t. Taking a trip in the middle of December really made the first half of this month FLY by. For the past week, I was in Munich, Germany. I will be uploading some pictures from my phone later. Unfortunately, I took plenty…

I think that my hamstrings,…
