Hey, I’m Workin Here…

Evidently, I am loud. I had not thought about it before, but I received some feedback today that made me realize that I am on the louder side when I engage in recreational activities. A case in point occurred today when I was completing a streaming spin class on my balcony. I was on my bike, peddling away and having a grand time.
