For the last 3 weeks I’ve been suffering from a terrible summer cold that has really kicked my butt in a way that a cold virus has never done to me before. It made me realize how changed and weak my immune system is since the 2019 pandemic started. Wearing masks for over a year now undoubtedly made our bodies sterile to common colds to the point that that a summer cold virus could prolong itself into 3+ week ordeal. And I’m not the only one dealing with this summer cold from hell.

It’s hard not to forget the year we endured or how easy it is to catch covid, so I’ve put together a short list of 3 products I use and highly recommend for keeping your fitness routine extra clean.

I was in New York when it happened, while the rest of my immediate family was in St. Louis together. A few weeks later, as soon as I could, I went to visit and spend some time with my mom.
