I'm extra. It's not a secret. When I do things, I really like to commit all out. It is both a strength and a weakness. When I made the decision to stop using my fit-stagram @Rock.Anne.Run I knew I didn't want to just "ghost." I wanted to celebrate the journey.

It is so weird not having any coworkers- okay- that is a lie. I have coworkers, they are just all over the United States. I easily could have signed up to run the ADP Corporate 5K as part of the charity team, but I decided to sit this one out. I hate evening runs when … Continue reading The largest outdoor office party in Hampton Roads!
