Each week at my martial art studio we have a physical focus and a mental focus. This week’s lessons happened to be the same thing; flexibility… Being flexible in all areas of our lives is important. Physically it will allow us to move with more ease, and lessen our chances of injury. In martial arts, especially… Continue reading Flexibility…

Sole to Soul Connect

I’ve just got another pair of Brooks running shoes, these are called Anthem – I didn’t name them, just bought them.
