Ronda-- A year ago you made it your mission to get serious and to get to the games in 2010. You went paleo all the way- you are leaner and stronger than ever before-- and you bring a determination and grit everyday to each and every workout like no one else. Thank you for inspiring all of us at CFNE - and for cheering for us all the way as you go. Best of luck this weekend!!! m
