Restore Honor Ride

Some days are harder than others

Some days are harder than others

Every day I get up early in the morning, whether I’m riding or not. Chances are, at least 6 days out of 7, that I am riding. It seems that no matter how I try, it takes 2 to 2 and a half hours to get ready. What takes so long, you might ask? First I have to walk my 2 dogs, Bodhi and Ace. […]

SevenPoint2 is teaming up with the Restore Honor Ride

I’m excited to announce that SevenPoint2 is supporting the Restore Honor Ride by providing their outstanding plant-based, organic alkaline nutrition products. I’ve actually been using SevenPoint2 for about 2 years.  I started when my good friend, Jerry Brodeur introduced it to me.  Even though I’m a certified health coach, I didn’t realize the importance of alkalinity.  When he told me about SevenPoint2, I started researching alkalinity […]
