  1. Very useful information. But do you think that only running would be a great idea by avoiding other physical exercises. People are surrounded by many diseases and they need different physical workouts.
    I want to know that should we only depend on running or associate other exercises as well.

  2. I also just want to drink wine and save shelter animals…but maybe run instead of take naps because I’m too darn anxious to sit for too long 😛 Happy Friday <3

  3. Those pancakes look amazing – I need to make zucchini pancakes now! I just want to run and save all the shelter animals also and then run with them because dogs make the best running buddies. Have a great weekend!

  4. Those pancakes look so good!! Hmmm, may have to try and make those this weekend. Thanks so much for sharing my post and you should apply to Wilder next year. Honestly, it really was an incredible experience. Happy weekend friend! xoxo
