I’m guilty of hoarding. I’d rather call it collecting, but if I’m being real with myself, it’s hoarding. There are piles of things in boxes that I don’t look at more than a few times a year and it’s silly.

We didn’t know much about the race other than the cause and were happy to take part in it.
Listen. Linda. Sometimes I don’t want to run, OK? Continue reading Youtube Exercises to Save You From Sloth
