Comment of the Week

“My wife and I just lost our home in the Southern Oregon, Almeda fire on Sept. 8th. I had less than 3 minutes to get out and had some sweats on and a t-shirt. Made it to my wifes office where we slept on the floor for 3 nights. The Red Cross is an awesome organization and the generosity of the people who live here are tremendous. We are pretty stable and getting a bit better everyday. So many more people lost everything and had no insurance. We’ll get through this and time will heal.
I started back with my Essential Primal Movements this week and hope to start back sprinting this weekend. My food intake has been low, but high quality. The stress was incredible, but I believe I weathered the worse of it due to being Primal.
All the best to this community and hold your loved ones close. I hope to join back in with the banter when things settle for us.”

-Sorry to hear, Nocona. All the best.
