Oh, wait. I lied.
I guess it felt like I was on vacation on Friday when I went to Olive Garden and shopping. I had an amazing time. W... Read more
First Week of Training
This week was my first week of training. Not gonna lie, it was rocky. It wasn't rocky because I felt I couldn't do it. No, it was midterms. This means I had to juggle studying for midterms, papers, and training. I could not push running aside li... Read more
