At the Beloit Public Library

Those of you who know me know that I have a bit of a competitive streak in me. You walked 12,000 steps today? That’s nice. My Fitbit says I walked 15,412. You paid $22.95 for that sweater? Poor thing. I just bought the same one and only paid $18.95. You can run a 6 minute mile? Well, I have to admit you have me beat on that one. As much as I want to win at just about everything, winning at sports was never really an area in which I excelled.
