Which way is up?

FGB4 UPDATE: Our Fight Gone Bad team is now at 15 people and we’ve raised $1390 thus far. We’ve still got time for more people to sign up to compete, so click here to sign up now!

    how’d you hear about the comp in Syracuse? My friend is helping plan it and I’ll be there! They just put the registration page up.

    1) Good luck to our hybrid challenge competitors.
    2) From the SAID article:
    “Stress to muscles will cause them to get bigger, and so on. (By the way, the muscles will grow much faster than the ligaments, which is why you might get injured a couple months into a weight training program, after the muscles have had a chance to strengthen but the ligaments and tendons have not.”
    Ho hum. I know, hey, let’s add sprinting in vibrams to the mix!
    Davi says: tendon problems, welcome to my body.

  • Sophie

    I’m not going to be able to make it to the mud run race, I’m going to be out of town. I spoke with Sara about taking my spot on the team but she wasn’t sure if she was already signed up on another team. If Sara is on your team please let me know so I can find someone else

  • Jai

    Hi, everyone! I’m back in town, so I should be seeing some of you at the box again shortly. But more importantly, I’m throwing myself a belated, post-vacation birthday party this Friday and if anyone’s interested in coming, feel free to join in! The invite website is in two parts and (WWW.TINYURL.COM/) oh-so-cleverly hidden in parentheses (ATOJAI), please RSVP so I can give a proper list to the doorman. I live near 56th and 1st.
    Also, Sophie, when is the mud run? I’ve been contemplating…

  • Gabe, they sent us an email about the competition up at Syracuse with the request that we spread the word. That’s awesome that you’re going!

  • Sophie

    Jai- mud run is oct 3
    Sara let me know if you are interested, if not, you are welcome to take it Jai
