Consciousness is Relative!
As I sit and get back into the blog-o-sphere, I have a concussion on my head.
It was SO silly and stupid. But, to be honest, I'm rather mad about it. I
have been working my butt off stay healthy. I use ice baths, epsom salt soaks,
ice packs, rollers, yoga.... And I have been forced into a rest day. I was told

Backing up a bit, I have had an awesome summer so far. I can now officially

I am now registered for my first 100 mile race!!!!!! I am competing in The

wouldn't be reading this blog right now.
Be well! Be safe!! Have Fun!!!
