Photography: Amanda Elle For me it’s not easy to go to the gym because I have to wake up around 5:15am to get in a good workout. When I choose to workout my mornings sound like this: wakeup, drive to the gym, workout, shower, get ready for work and take three trains into NYC. By the time I’m walking from the last subway to my job I’m legit the walking dead. Good thing I’m in NYC because I look normal there, HA!
