To start, I would like to define myself as a relatively fit individual. From time to time I will do a pushup or two, jump the jacks or go for a bike ride. As far as skinny dudes in their early 20’s go, I’m pretty average. Which, would suggest that climbing up some steep hills […]

Even on its own, the […]
