Busy, Busy, Busy!

It’s really weird… I have been very busy every day, but nothing much to write about. I am finally getting back in running shape after my hip issues and feeling motivated again. The hip pain really bummed me out! I was in a lot of pain and really didn’t feel like doing much of anything …

I am so happy that I eased up on my running this week and decided to go to the massage therapist. I got really lucky today and ended up with a lady who is a sports massage therapist and has been doing this for years. She was really knowledgeable and I felt like she really …
