I am challenged…

I’ve had many moments of zen at A.M., some of them in the ‘upper bakery’ I’m told it’s called. Chillin’ on an awesome spring day (with my rad silver sequined shirt; yes, it’s me again). But April of ’03, wow, what a spring…what was it, 15 feet of snow in April? They just don’t make [...]

I AM Training

Last year was very much an experience for me. In early April myself and a few of my co-workers decided to do a hiking/ski experience at beautiful Alpine Meadows. I was excited and petrified all in the same breath. Skiing I don’t mind, hiking is definitely not my forte. To make a long story short, [...]
