Paleo F(x) - Day 2

Day 2 of Paleo F(x) was even better than I expected.  I was planning to see a crowd quite similar to that of the CrossFit Games... and walked into a room full of anything but.  The group was diverse - ranging from long-term Paleo lifestylers to folks just getting started, only a few weeks in.  There were kids in college, thirty year olds, fifty year olds... and a few women I would guess were in at least their seventies.  There were folks from New Zealand, from Canada, from the Middle East.  Everyone was vibrant, full of energy, and most important - healthy!  For three days - we all came together with a common goal, a common bond... eating for our lives and optimizing our personal self.  

Here's a photo summary of the days events:
