Punching My Way Back to the Boxing Gym

I’m starting to feel my age. At 44 last month, I’m no spring chicken, but I refuse to succumb to the inexorable march of time. There are still so many things I want to do with my life. So, like most people during the New Year, I enrolled in a gym, a boxing gym. Getting old can […]
