If anyone from yesterday's Foundations class (or anyone from IMCF for that matter) would like me to e-mail them information and further resources, please e-mail me at soraya.turner@us.army.mil and I will send them a few good Crossfit Journal articles, a Zone food calculator and some great nutrition links.
