August 1, 2018

Wow. I started my exercise break on April 25th – just over three months ago! Time sure has flown by. I’m very excited to enter into the next phase of my exercise break, which is technically a set-back, but for awesome reasons. I’ll get to that shortly.

67 Miles of Biking in St Joseph, Michigan

July 8, 2018

Say hello to my dragon buddy!

I met him while vacationing in St. Joseph, Michigan. We watched July 4th fireworks from the bluff, spent lots of time at the beach, and had lots of quality family time. I also biked a lot. Over seven hours, split between six different workouts! Read the rest of this entry »
