Training Any Way I Can

If I had to evaluate my physical self and rate my abilities on a scale from one to ten, I would be about a five. It is not impressive but a good place to start to build up muscle and strength. I have every intention of working with a bike trainer to gain stamina for a big adventure under the

Spent the Weekend Hiking
