The 42lbs weight loss challenge

March 2nd, 2008

My flatmate who raced IMCanada this past summer (btw his first time in sub10) came back from Africa (a gruelling 4month law-school exchange,…with a few beers and Indian food involved) 45lbs heavier than when he left!!! I know that’s a pretty impressive feat – but if you know anything about my roomie, he’s one impressive guy. If anyone can gain weight in Africa, my roomie can. When you buy chicken breasts, have you ever wondered whatever happened to the wings of the bird? There’s a good chance he’s eaten them.

Anyways, with the new race season approaching, my flatmate has undertaken a challenge with one of his law-buddies – he has until a cut-off date of April 4th to lose 42lbs.  Loser buys the winner a night’s stay at the Banff Springs Fairmont Hotel.  So far his running tally includes a total of 8lbs lost over a 6day period. I’m going to head off for a run now,…it’s time for me to leave when he looks at me as if I was a roast of pork. Maybe I’ll invite him to come along, and hope I don’t have to perform CPR.
