Because I can


Blogging

Holding plank position in class, the woman next to me asked me “Gosh, I NEVER hear you complain in this class. Why don’t you ever complain.” I looked at her. “Because I choose to be here.” I said.

Eggers vs. Armstrong; The Race


Blogging

It’s not often that I struggle to find the words to say after an event. Today I am struggling. It was so much more amazing than we could have ever imagined. Sit back, grab a good latte, and thank you for allowing me to share this experience with you. The Race I don’t have much […]
