It has been a long time since I wrote a blog post. Five months, two weeks, and five days to be exact. I didn’t write that often (hello Ironman training) but I dropped off the face of the social media/real life/blog earth. So what happened to me?

I do wish that I continued writing so that I could remember little details that I don’t remember anymore. Hindsight is… Continue reading It’s Been a While
