Wrapping Up An Active and Healthy 2014 With Together Counts

It’s yet to be published, but I’m working on a post in which I basically declare 2014 ‘THE BEST YEAR EVER,” doing so not in a hyperbolic-internet way and not in pompous-look-at-me fashion either, but in a very real, reflective, and holistic manner. 2014 was, in no uncertain terms, nothing […]
