Hello and Happy Monday!

 

I am back from my fantastic vacation in San Diego.

But, alas… I had to.

 

As you can see from the picture above…

 

We are going to talk about chafing today.

 

Chafing is my arch nemesis.

 

About a month ago, I was complaining on Instagram (if you don’t you should)…that my running shirts were making me chafe on my chest.

 Hellllllllo!

I hope you are doing well today.
