These past couple of weeks have been a little crazy for me. First, in early February, things were going great. I was feeling awesome, rocking the Paleo, generally on top of the world.

Having taken the last week off of any and all activity, I am more than ready to get back into Crossfit again. In fact, I dreamed about it last night and was running around frantically trying to find a class. So that starts on Monday, tomorrow. Also, I want to start running. I have been reading Chi Running and I want to do this. I practiced some of it during the Great Aloha Run and I know I felt as good as I did because of that. I mean really, zero to 8 mil…
