    I was getting really stressed and tired of feeling like I had to compromise in order to fit in the thing that balanced my mind + body, fitness. I remember one day, standing half naked in the shower line, clutching and typing furiously on my blackberry (yup, that long ago) with one hand, and holding toiletries and a towel in my other hand. I knew there had to be a better way.

Dinner table conversations revolved around discussing dermatology and medical journal articles.
