It's been a while...it's marathon time.

Beginners read this! -I lost 10 lbs, 7 times :)
It's January 1st, and the 1st thing I'm going to say is that I'm no expert. I'm not, really. 2 years ago I began a journey that led to many successes in my small life. When I began, I never thought I would be where I am today. I didn't/couldn... Read more
