happy to be alive!

Had a ballin day today. School is chaos right now, high levels of work but I'm diggin all the learning I'm doing right now. I've got a few goals for spring break / break between spring and summer semester.

1. Visit the active release chiropractor down the road to learn some more. That dude is smart and is helping lots of people.
2. Visit a ROLF practitioner and learn some more about em.
3. Read like a book warrior
4. Go through some more mobility WODs. That dude rules.
5. Love my girlfriend and family some more(I should have put this one higher)
6. Keep killing my training and nutrition.
