30-Day Paleo Challenge (video presentation)

The other day I had the pleasure of giving a talk at CrossFit Foggy Bottom to kick off their 30-Day Paleo Challenge.  Of course, with it being just over a month out to Cupid’s Undie Run, I also used this as an opportunity to plug Cupid’s as much as humanly possible.  Hey, might as well combine the two passions into one, amiright?
