Superhero Sprint

In 2017, I had hit rock bottom, at least, I thought I had. I was 47 years old, just divorced for the 2nd time, looked like I was physically in shape, but really wasn’t, and appeared on the outside to have everything under control, but REALLY didn’t. I had no confidence, low self-esteem and no […]
