Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeerrrre we go again!!! I was introduced to CF in 2008, started with Ben Bergeron and the Original Gangsters of CFNE!!! 6 years later, 4 games appearances....sheeeeese, this was supposed to be just a hobby! And I am still treating it as hobby of love, staying fit and just squeezing workouts in when I can! This year, will be much different, back to work for the construction season and school 4 nights a week, its not leaving me much time to train....soooooooooooooo Im gonna do what I have done in the past...."THE BEST I CAN". Its just a "hobby" to stay in shape !!!! Right??! You may see me in Cali, maybe you won' gets in the way. If I do go back, it's because I have missed my dear CF friends from all over the world. XOXOXO
