Midsummer Reflections

Good afternoon! As I sit here during my lunch break on this ever so hot July day, I realize that the year is over half way over. Heck, it’ll be Christmas before we know it!!

Fall also brings my 45th birthday and my next powerlifting meet Continue reading Midsummer Reflections
