  1. Great month! Damn…the hubs was supposed to race Huronia this weekend but is passing in order to focus on the race in Toronto on July 22.
    Hope you rock it!

  2. Great month Marlene.

    Bella sleeps in her cradle with the door closed in our bedroom but at the weekend or on a day off I usually wake up sometime around 6 am and then open the doors and she can sleep on our bed for a while.

  3. Hilarious that you used a hashtag in your blog post. I can’t stop laughing. Hashtags are popping up everywhere now.

    As a matter of fact I am using them in sentences when I want to aggravate Karen.

    Great month and great things ahead.

  4. Great month, girlie girl!! Keep being strong…and get that dang elbow healed quickly so you can get back out there and kick some more butt!!

  5. June was an amazing month marlene! When you put how many hours of fitness you accomplished I’m truly amazed at how you can fit it all in. You rock!
