Well, how do I begin this recap…where do I begin this recap??? I had a seizure 4 days before I was set to run a half marathon. My favorite half marathon because it’s Star Wars.

WOW! To say that this weekend was memorable, it’s an understatement. From the Cigna blogger event, where we learned about nutrition and exercise in a fun way where we stacked cups, apples, did (fake) shot, played beer pong without the beer, oh yeah…we sang too.
