6 Personal Questions with Matt | Relationships

For the longest time, people have requested from me to start sharing more of my relationship with Matt on my blog. We’ll be celebrating 6 years this July, so what better way than to ask him “6 personal questions.” So…. without further ado, here’s Matt’s FIRST guest blog post. Let’s do this. What’s the most annoying thing about Dawn? 1) That’s a hard question…there’s so many that come to mind! Just playing:) Its not so much annoying as it is a pet- peeve but Dawn drives like a maniac and plays her techno music really loud!

In remembrance of Lieutenant Murphy, the Crossfit community gets together every Memorial Day and completes one of the toughest workouts, known as, Murph. Murph 1 mile run 100 pulls ups 200 push-ups 300 air squats 1 mile run Post Murph: Tuesday morning, I woke up feeling a little sore but nothing out of the ordinary. I had done Murph three times in my life, so I knew it was common to feel some soreness after an intense workout.

I couldn’t sleep, and I was frustrated that I couldn’t bend my arms or even get myself dressed–Yes, it hurt that much! Matthew and I, even …
