Day 13: We’ve Fallen

Our bodies broken just a bit, we did a last CrossFit on Thursday and then packed the car and headed south for a family reunion.  Two days of glorious nothing. Maxx ran around at the dog park and on the farm. We ate, and hung out. Sunday we begin again with a 14-mile bike ride. […]
