As y’all know, I love Pure Barre. It is my favorite active thing to do (outside of running, of course) and I try to get to two to three classes a week.

Happy Friday! I’m super excited about this week’s fun topic: five things in my gym bag. I changed mine a bit because I don’t belong to a traditional gym but I head to Pure Barre a couple times a week and take the same bag with me each class. Per usual, I’m linking up with my […]
