    Offtopic : Hangover 3 came out today…not sure how the reviews are. But I remember watching Hangover 2 with CFNErs last summer. So can we all do a CFNE movie night soon? We can pick either hangover or any other movie. I’m totally game.

      Way to go, Greg!! Awesome that you stayed committed — keep the lifestyle change going!!

    • Doug E

      Looking good! Great improvement. It goes to show what happens in life when you commit yourself to something. Reminds me of a quote from Robert F. Kennedy – “Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly. “

  18. Rachel E

    The Chief: 17 Rx (1 round PR)

    Push ups slowed me down just enough to make that 4th round tough (4, 4, 3, 3, 3). So impressed with you beasts getting 5,6 rounds — Sarah W and Heather V I’m lookin’ at you!

    • Heather V.
