I unleashed my fierce determination when I got my wetsuit on this morning! I like the ‘fake it til you make it’ approach when trying something new. It also helps if you let out a ‘rawr’ or big growl. Of course, a little swimming fear crept up on me… After practicing putting on and taking […]

Good morning! A big thank-you for your support with my new Liberate Glo Bar launch last night. We sold out! I will be letting you know when more will hit the shopping cart. I could not believe it but my body bounced back so quickly from my half marathon on Sunday. You might remember my […]
