I woke up after yesterday’s race with a very sore left ankle. Otherwise I feel pretty good.

I wanted to enjoy some of the anti-inflammatory properties of blueberries. I had also picked up some dehydrated goji berries at the natural food market last week. Oh She Glows has a post about rehydrating goji berries to use them in smoothies.
