Woke up on the left side of Jenna’s bed at 3 AM, feeling wide awake. I took a Benadryl, which knocked me back out until 8:00. Wahoo! I’m officially on West Coast time.

My smoothie contained:
- 1 cup almond milk
- 2 cups mystery green
- 1 frozen banana
- 1 tablespoon Maca Powder

Plus, an English muffin with TJ’s almond butter:
Thanks to Lisa, who had a last-minute donation to my Livestrong fund for the Century ride! I appreciate it!
