“I Can’t, I Have To Sleep”

I won't lie, this is probably the lamest thing I say when people ask to hang out past, I don't know, seven p.m? Or before 10 a.m. No, I don't wake up that late. I'm just making sure I get my early workout in. Today's little post is going to be about sleep and working… Continue reading “I Can’t, I Have To Sleep”

Running Is Boring

Last week I wrote about how yoga is boring but this week, we're going to look at how running is boring. Or, at least how people tend to think running is boring. News flash, I refuse to think it is.

Working Out Sucks

And somehow I love it? I've been hinting at this blog post for the last week or so.
