The Traveling Paleo

The holidays are officially upon us which means plenty of family, great food, and possibly some traveling thrown in there for most people.

Daybreak CrossFit’s Grand Opening

This past weekend we had a great time celebrating the Grand Opening of Daybreak CrossFit in Wayland, MA.
