What is the premise behind the eating challenge?

Is it just sticking to a strict diet?

jshish8 said...

is the challenge posted online somewhere?

Sujata said...

Rachel, how did you do on the Tour du Port? I woke up too late to make it up there but still got out and rode the Baltimore-Annapolis but I need a new bike I plan to do anything more than 20 miles.

Evan said...

Full Details on the Challenge will be forth coming.

Mandi said...

All of the details for the Zone/Paleo Fitness Challenge are done and posted on the bulletin board. Posting this information on our webpage today seems to be a little easier said than done. We will try to get it up asap.

Sujata, The ride yesterday was fun :) I did the 50 mile course instead of 65 so I could ride with this random woman I met there (she knew Baltimore very well and with about 200 turns I figured it'd be good to be with her if we got lost, plus I couldn't convince her to do 65). It took a whole lot longer than I expected, with all the turns etc, but it was a gorgeous day so I was in no rush. It's good you have your bike even if it's not great for distance! The Sunday endurance class will have cycling occasionally I believe.

A word to those doing the NUTRITION challenge-- the best thing I've ever learned when it comes to these 'clean up the diet' thingies is that if you Fail to Plan then Plan to Fail. Just my two-cents. (It's soooo true though, start planning the second you sign-up).

Also, this Sunday we'll have PARALLETTE making at Diesel. I'll be annoying and post this daily and I'll ask people when I'm there, but if you know you'll be coming to make your very own parallette to take home, please post or let me know in person so I get enough supplies. It will be about 10 bucks, take about an hour, and will be around 1pm (or whatever time is good for most people, doesn't matter to me).

This workout was good for me, it continued to punish me for not using the hook grip (could use a discussion sometime on how to maintain the hook grip when cycling), also I have a tendency to dump and rest for too long, and this type of workout helps defeat that.

Teresa said...

Thank you all so much for your kind words. Believe me, I would not be where I am without your continued support, moreso on the rough days than the good. I absolutely love our "box" and everyone who makes it what it is. You guys are amazing.

Jason S., Tyler, and Susan. You guys did a fantastic job this weekend. Thank you for subjecting yourself to this grueling event. I truly hope you will do it again.

Evan, your support throughout the weekend was priceless. You seem to know exactly what to say at the right time, whether it's a good or bad moment for me. Thank you for making the trip for us. I couldn't ask for a better coach, and I am honored to be one of your athletes.

Rachel said...


I wanted to give you a big CONGRATULATIONS from Japan! I'm excited for you and I look forward to seeing your next accomplishment! Great work! See you when I get back!

Rachel L.

Awe, I welled up a little.
