    A Girls Weekend in Duluth

    I recently had a girls weekend in Duluth and we had a blast! Duluth is a perfect city for a weekend getaway or even for a day trip. The last time I traveled to Duluth, I went solo to see a power lifting meet, and that was two summers ago. I’ve also been up there for Grandma’s Marathon, which is an experience in itself. If you’re in driving distance to Duluth, I definitely recommend it. Our trip start early Friday morning, we drove up early so had the majority of the day to explore. After we arrived, we were all hungry so we grabbed an early lunch at Grandma’s Restaurant,…

    Duluth Adventures & Twin Ports Powerlifting Meet

Duluth is also a great city to travel to for a weekend. It has beautiful scenery, lots of stuff to do outdoors, history, and the city is great to explore.     My weekender bag Seeing as I was traveling alone and I…

    Mid-Year Check In | 2016 Goals

    A lot of people make New Year’s Resolutions for themselves at the turn of year, but I rarely hear anyone talking about their previous year’s resolutions and if they achieved them. Maybe some just forget what their resolutions were or maybe they aren’t looking to reflect on the past, but I enjoy looking back at goals I set for myself to see what I achieved and I what I can continue to improve upon. Lucky for me, I blogged all about my New Year’s Resolutions and My 2016 Fitness Goals, and I wanted to see how I’m doing so far now that nearly half the year is already over. I’m always…
