Being active has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. I wasn't exactly an athlete, but staying fit has always been important to me. So, whether I was running, practicing yoga or sweating it out at boot camps, for at least the past twenty years, fitness has been a priority. That doesn't mean it's always been easy. A major knee injury and a thyroid condition have sometimes made motivation more difficult. But I didn't give up. Even when the scale didn't reflect the effort I was putting in, I kept plugging away and did activities that my body could handle until I was on the road to recovery. And, thankfully, I've been feeling great this whole year. I've been able to run again and am doing so several times a week. And since I've been even more active the past several months, I've found that I'm paying more attention to workout beauty tips and tricks.
