This is me getting ready to cross the finish line of my first 10k that I ran last Saturday. My [...]
I’ve wanted to sit down and write a post about coach chuck for a while now. I’ve been working out with him for about 3 weeks and while I am sad that I had to make the switch from Superman to him, he has not let me down at all. In fact he has upped [...]
