Workout {Pictures} of the Week:
Okay, so, after two days of doing COMPLETELY different workouts than normal... It’s official - I like running/jogging! On Saturday, earlier in the day I went to a park/trail with one of my friends/managers at Rite Aid, and we jogged/walked while talking for awhile, and it was SO lovely!! I love love love LOVE nature, and I’m so glad I went. We’re gonna try and go every weekend now… I’m excited!
