For those of you who CrossFit, 200 pounds isn’t all that impressive, but, for me, it was pretty darn cool, especially since I increased my deadlift weight by almost a third! My previous 1 rep max was 155 pounds, so that’s […]

    A couple of weeks ago, Julie wrote a post about the meaning of her dog Sadie’s name. It means “Princess” and fits her adorable pup perfectly.
