Front Row Tickets to the Gun Show

I've been broadening my online social circle lately, and have made some virtual friends in foreign lands, to include Utah. Yes, Utah. I've actually driven through the state, and what I saw was beautiful. Honest. Drove along Highway 80 headed West. SO?
Well this twit-ter dude suggested that we join in on a Big Bad Biceps Challenge being hosted by a friend of his at http://www.yumyucky.com/ . Never heard of her? Me either, so of course I was willing to give the challenge a try. In brief, yumyucky wants us to do a bicep routine 5 out of the next 7 days. First we have to take "before" pictures, and then, of course, "after" pictures.
Z has been using weights at home for a few weeks now, and I am very encouraged and excited by this. For one, the weights that I 'had to have' about 4 years ago are finally getting used. Well, we DO use them every year to help anchor the Christmas Tree, but that isn't in the brochure.
So here they are, for all the world to see. Z's and my BEFORE pictures. Try not to drool. Remember, he is only 13. I'll be sure to let you know how we do. Woot!

  1. lovely ... and good luck ... make it as scientific as possible - I'd like to change up my weight routines ... and I need you as a guinea pig!

  2. Thanks you for your guest post on mizfitonline. I can so imagine my first marathon there now. =) yes, it will be my first and I kindda got rattled (and stressed) a few months ago when they put up a 5:30 cut-off time. And they haven't uploaded a course map yet. I hope it will be as flat as a pancake!

  3. Saw your post on MizFitOnline today! Thanks for a great overview of the course; I'll be there for the big MizBooRun fest, too! I talked to a gal at my last triathlon, and she said the course is nice and flat.
