With everything else that’s happening in the world and in LeanderLand, I completely forgot about this weekend’s GISH.

It’s a massive scavenger hunt thing.

Normally a week long.

Intensified, shortened, and modified to twenty four hours in light of COVID.

I never thought I’d be super excited to go work out.


I’m especially super chuffed to see my personal trainer cause she’s awesome and she’s guaranteed to make me sore and she’s so totally going to get me fit again.

With my help.
