My husband went back to school this summer. He’s working on his master’s in teaching English as a second language. I have a big life update announcement, but I’m going to share that live on Facebook at 2PM EST on Thursday. I will talk about what is in this post as well. After Thursday I’ll […]
Another good reason to do Yoga 🙂
Yoga is a great complement to any runners’ regular routine. Regular running will create tightness in some areas of the body and leave other areas relatively week. Yoga can help to loosen out those tight spots and strengthen weak muscles – making you a better less injury prone runner.

I’ve never spoken about my religion on this blog, mainly because I like to keep my religious and political views out of my writing and “public persona”, but here goes nothing.
