I can't wait to workout again, too. Good times! As for the death-lunge race, remember that I got a head start because there was not enough room for us to go side-by-side. But wait until we are working out at the U! *insert evil laughter* :twisted:

All the photos from today are here, and the video I'll have to upload later when I'm not restricted by WiFi.

P.s. we ate lots of food! and then some. Lol last time me and crystal got together we tag teamed a vegan food fundraiser and basically bought all the food and ate it. everyone was staring mouth agape at our food intake. Totally worth it.

Awesome looking forward to working out with you. We will use crystals gym instead of mine though you may not fit into it with all the muscle you gained recently.
