It’s been a long week for me, especially since I haven’t been able to work out due to some injuries.

I suffered a contusion on my right shin, and I sprained my left wrist–so I’ve been out for about a week and I’m anxious to get back to working out and continuing my health and physical fitness journey.

I have had some memorable events this week, like returning the 2002 Gold Medal for the 1500 Speed Skating event back to Derek Parra.

I got to participate in the Swing for Life charity softball game.
