The Power Of No

Recently, K and I have been ramping up our fitness efforts when it comes to not only running and exercise, but also diets. We’re trying to cook at home more, eat out less, which means cooking at home more and paying attention to what we’re eating. Continue reading The Power Of No


Feeling Good

I’m guilty of using the blog to air grievances whether they have to do with my body, my training plan, my headspace, or even just the weather in Cleveland. Today I’d like to do something different and praise the status of…things. Just everything, really.
