Saturday, February 11, 2012      0 comments

Living today

Thursday, February 09, 2012      0 comments

Wednesday, February 08, 2012      0 comments

My health is important to me, but so is family, work and keeping my home clean. Until recently, I allowed these other things to take priority over getting out for my run. I am a teacher, and by the end of the day, I'm tired. Sometimes I just ... Read more
