Bacon Explosion - ifailedfran

I don’t like to deal in hyperbole.  I’m not here to shock you or to trick you into reading or clicking a link.  I won’t support something if I don’t believe in it.

But Did You Die_featured

On my six month anniversary of CrossFit, I did something I hadn’t done before.  It wasn’t something I had planned on doing.  It just happened.  And when it was over, I knew I would never be the same again.  I crossed some sort of boundary, some sort of point-of-no-return.  I entered the furnace and by […]
