    My Third Blogiversary

    I remember exactly where I was when I decided to start a blog. Three summers ago, I was walking into Central Park at 72nd Street, thinking about sharing my boutique fitness adventures. As a recent graduate, I wasn’t making much money and would research fitness studios and instructors online before investing in each class. At the time, each class was a major investment.
