Base training is the safe and injury-free way of beginning to train for a race.

It was a great night of love, laughter, God, and theater – and yes we went OUT to eat. In fact, we went to Chili’s and I’m proof you can eat whole, out.

In it’s basic form, a Whole30 is 30 days of eating whole, unprocessed food. And this girl is on a whopping DAY 20. I ain’t giving up now, nor am I letting go of a great evening with some of my favorite ladies. So, here’s how we got along, the Whole30 and I.
