Public Service Announcement

Ok, it has been a minute…

🎶Allow me to re-introduce myself… my best H-to-the-O-V voice 🎶

Bikini Contest Prep – Weeks 1-2

As you all know, I have been in the running game for quite some time now (not as much lately as before but I still gets it in every now and again).  Well, last March I wanted to help my running by adding some strength training into the mix.  Somehow, I got totally hooked on lifting weights and only ran when I made the time (outside of lifting).  It was also during this time that I met several people in the figure competition world.  I saw that you had to be very disciplined, focused and determined to make that a reality.  I already posses all of those traits, so I said why not give it a try.
