So, several months ago, I did something to my back and I am not sure exactly what I did, but regardless of how much I slowed downed at the gym, my back stayed weak and irritated. Finally, one day when I was reaching into the dryer and my back seized, I decided I had enough. I had enough of not being able to sit without pain, enough of not being able to lift at the gym, enough of having to walk with very rigid posture. I had enough.
For years I have heard a rumor that Louisville has a home-grown circus. I can honestly say that I didn't really believe it was true. And if it was true, what kind of caliber could it be? So on a random Friday night, my friend Christina and I were trying to figure out what we wanted to do... I took to google to see what was going to be happening that weekend and came up Turner's circus. I didn't actually know anyone who had been to Turner's Circus, the closest I came was a friend's ex-fiance's new wife was a performer of the circus. Regardless of not knowing anyone who has ever attended Louisville's original circus, I figured it would be a fun adventure.
So, I am very much an omnivore. I eat vegetarian several days a week, but I think I would really struggle to go full on vegetarian - I really like steak and cheese burgers. Really like 'em. But as you may have deduced, I am fairly food adventurous. I love to cook and on many occasions I have gone vegan in my cooking endeavors. My favorite vegan cook book is Thug Kitchen - if you are vegan, you've heard of them. If you aren't, I highly recommend you give them a try. You wont go wrong.
I fell behind another week - this adventure a week is hard! Harder than I thought it would be! Bare with me... I am trying to get back at it... Ali
Have you ever participated in a Polar Plunge? Do you know what a Polar Plunge is? Well, in Louisville, its when you jump into the Ohio river in February. Why? For charity. In Louisville, you pay at least $70 to jump into the freezing cold Ohio river and all proceeds are donated to the Special Olympics of Kentucky.
