    I am sitting in my hotel room in Charleston, SC, attempting to digest a fantastic “cheat” dinner that was over the top non-paleo, and catching up on the latest news from Fashion Week in NYC. All the reports on the latest trends are being released like hockey scores on ESPN.

    I am pretty excited about the most talked about piece of news. That is, that leg warmers (a’la Flashdance) are coming back in a big way. All the designers are showing them. But, here is the catch, this time it’s leg warmers for men! With suits, casual wear, over boots, and, of course, as workout gear. Everyone is raving about them.

    Sean, I am counting on you for a pink version this fall (Dries Van Noten has them). Myself? I am e-mailing LuLu Lemon to inquire about their intent. Filthy-Fifty in Leg warmers would be pretty sweet!

      Hey, StuLu! If you’re looking for some good food down there, try FIG on Meeting St, Slightly North of Broad, or High Cotton on East Bay or McCrady’s on Unity Alley if you are interested in something high end. Sean Brock is the chef there and does some sick good stuff. I graduated from the College of Charleston, worked at the middle two restaurants, and will be returning soon. EAT, man, EAT!

        Joe, As it may be Fig IS where I ate last night!’ I am not sure who the Chef is but he/she is very talented. There was a hint of low southern in the dishes but not too heavy at all. Tonight with clients at the restaurant at the Charleston Place. Thanks for the suggestions and for thinking of me down here!!!!

    PEOPLE!

    I woke up at 430 this morning (wtf?) and stumbled across this:

    http://toughmudder.com/events/bear-creek/bear-creek-map/

    I want to do this and would love to assemble an MPH team to complete it. It would be CRAZY fun!
    Start together, finish together- Crawl in the snow, run through mud, swim in icy water, run through fire, etc. I mean c’mon, just another day, right?
    May 2, about 3 hours away in PA. Im thinking head up Sat night and stay over. Leg warmers mandatory. And after: a huge cheat meal.

    WHO IS IN?

    keep squattin’!

      Lemme know who is interested, I will gladly be team captain. We would just need to know an approximate number of team members.

    Only thing with the mud run is that you don’t want to DIE before Regionals- because you KNOW you will be going to Regionals! I don’t see any women in those pictures, but I would assume it isn’t limited to men?

      Ivy,

      I found a few women in the pictures. That race looks awesome—I think it would be good training for regionals, as long as you don’t break something. I’m thinking about it.

          I’ve seen this already, to the extent it matters, here is the related link for PA:

          http://toughmudder.com/events/bear-creek/

          I like how there is fire at the end. Because that’s just bad-ass.

          Anyway, I have a law school reunion that weekend, and I’m trying to see how I can do both.

      the mud run does look cool but i also noticed that there are no women in the pictures… according to the website, women are STRONGLY encouraged to enter so i’d be interested in joining the MPH team!

      I think it sounds fun, and would be interested, but I have no idea if I’d be capable of doing it. Any idea what level of fitness a person needs to be able to complete something like this?

          Don’t worry, Jenny. Someone will save you. It’ll be a real Kevin Costner/Whitney Houston situation (jump in anytime, Sean).

    Holy crap!

    OK, Steve, I’m in. Why? Because I am from Macungie, PA, and I gotta show some hometown pride.

    May 2, it’s on.

    Caveat: At least 5 MPH girls must come as well. If we’re going to show the world the bad-ass nature of MPH, they are a critical piece. It wouldn’t be the same without them.

    My friends did the one in San Diego. It looks super fun.. but there was no fire … or really high wire walking involved…. or really high board walks.. (can you tell I don’t like heights? )… I don’t know…..

    (95,105-) 

    Deadlifts killed me on last two. Scratched a couple times. Mom has suggested I take elements when I get back to help on this lift. Probably will stick around this weight to get the form solid.
