Having three seasons under my belt I thought I knew what I was doing. That all changed with a few new challenges and a bunch of new friends.

It’s a challenge to push yourself a little harder and a little further. Be proud of every workout that is accomplished and every step-even the baby ones-that you take on this course to the finishline.
