Last week I lost my grandma. Her passing was sudden and unexpected and in the wake of all of this I can’t quite figure out what to say here.

When you lose someone, especially someone you are close to, there is a natural tendency to spend a lot of time thinking about big picture things. For me, this has meant being here in this space and talking about the minutiae of my everyday life feels a bit…weird right now.

I’ll be back soon — maybe with grand philosophical ideas or maybe with just a workout update. I don’t know. For now I am just keeping up with everyday life, supporting my family, and making my way through that in-between space that loss brings.

Thanks for your support.
