These two have grown up together and have the sweetest bond. Even though Maggie believes to her core she doesn’t have to listen to Jude. I have no idea why but it’s hilarious because she really loves him. The first photo is them together on the day we adopted Maggie, Jude was 3. 🥰

My goal is to be there every other day for a balance of rest and recovery. So today I texted, watched videos, played the livestream and refreshed stats about 8000 times. Jude had an incredible day! He set a new PR (personal record) for clock average and made it in to the finals where he came in 14th!!! It was […]
