Nike plus and Ipod

Thursday, June 02, 2011      0 comments

Funny Side of Being Short

Monday, January 03, 2011      1 comments

My husband bought me some yoga pants because I needed some more workout clothes. They are really comfortable, but also really long. I thought I could get away with rolling them up. Uh, no. While I was jogging on the treadmill, my left pant leg k... Read more
