Gianni, yes I had a smoothie, with my quinoa and black beans. My job allows me time to conduct physical training, because it pays to be in shape. It keeps us sharp, which is very important, zero error and mistakes.

Three rounds, 21-15- and 9 reps, for time of:

Wow, great starts to the New Year, Choose2BWell, BlackKat, and Gianni!
Started tapering a bit this past week, so I ran: 3 miles Tuesday, 7 miles Thursday, 9 miles Saturday, and 2 miles Sunday. Less than one week to go!
If only my lunch breaks were longer (I only get 30 minutes) I would SOOOOO take advantage of this.

This morning for the first time in a few days I feel like I have a decent amount of energy. I will bike tonight, as well as walk.
Keep up the good work everyone!!
