Jesse is a 6'4” body builder type with bubbling muscles and clear skin; he works out pretty much every day (often twice a day) and brings his own protein powder to the gym. But he's sensitive. People can't seem to latch on to that easily either.
Macie is your average Feminist Studies and Exercise and Sports Science major from UCSB. By average, she means she's a walking contradiction. She loves all things sports and competition, and she is also a passionate philanthropist and activist. Most important, she is a nerd at heart. Macie coaches and runs character development programs from high school girls soccer players, and she continuously pursues her favorite activity - writing. Macie's various, but important passions include her non-profit organization, H.E.E.A.L. (Hope through Exercise, Energy, and Art for Life), which serves to fund other organizations who promote and provide exercise and art outlets (www.heealsb.org). They also include her podcast, Dropping the F Bomb (www.droppingthefbomb.org), which delves into modern-day feminism with a little bit of an attitude, and her blog, Lifestyle of the Torn and Triad, which follows her journey through her 3rd knee surgery in her 20s (http://lifestyleofthetornandtriad.weebly.com/blog). Macie will also be starting as a contributor for Elite Daily (www.elitedaily.com).

I wanted to add one final comment... I do not believe in coincidences. It was five years ago today (February 1st) that my Dad died. Macie and I had just left a meeting at the University of California Santa Barbara (UCSB) and had gotten into our respective cars. I saw my Mom had called and had a horrible feeling. When I called her back and she told me what happened, I called Macie who had just driven off.
Macie nor I planned the timing of this to work out that way. It has been a very special gift, one that I will always treasure.
Thank You for reading, Thank You for your ongoing support, and Thank You for being You. I am grateful for You.
