I had a better day today and I will take it and be grateful. I was talking with my daughter about it and she is thinking it is hormonal since it came out of the blue. After pondering that notion I am pretty much in agreement with her especially ... Read more

While yesterday's walk/mostly run was a good one interms of lots of wnergy, this morning's...not so much. I felt like I was dragging a concrete block behind me and my energy level was blah at best. I am ASSUMING this is normal. If its not, someo... Read more
