I remembered a little story about personal training that I want to share with everyone. It was the end of a session with T.

How Far

Bigger picture from 2012 with a golden glow labeled "after" is me standing tall on a staircase and smiling. A superimposed photo in black and white, labeled "before" from 2011 is of me standing on a street corner, smiling, using my forearm crutches and my left leg is crooked inward.
