“Who are you? What words describe you? What do you wish people knew about you?” Three questions, short in length and large in significance.  These were the ice breaker questions of a small breakout session during last year’s Women’s Fitness Summit.  Have I mentioned lately how much I love ice breakers?  So awkward!  So uncomfortable…
