    I am indeed an athlete

    and I am a member of the track team at school. I am able to run fast and I am able to outrun most people. Being fast is a huge advantage especially if you are trying to get away from something in a hurry...lol :)

    I love working out <3 especially

    since my little one was born, I want to be a good role model for him. You can tell him to stay active and eat healthy when you aren't even doing the same thing!
