    I just stumbled across this excellent site about eating:

    check the index on the right hand side – reams of good stuff here

    keep squattin’

    also, some of you may remember me singing the praises of Spa World out in centreville.

    well, i just found this place in annandale. it is a much smaller, CHEAPER, and CLOSER version of spa world.
    there are no frills here (no hair salon, no community hang out space, no sleeping room, no restaurant, etc.), the chill tub is numbingly cold (it has a super high PSI jet coming out of the ceiling too) and the steam room is almost dangerously hot (you need a potholder for the door handle). I highly recommend it for recovery contrast hydrotherapy.
    as an added bonus, there is karaoke next door.

    the box bday wod was really awesome and a great celebration. i thought there should be something to celebrate/commemorate your very first web referral from a adult site. I’ll leave the design of the workout to the experts i.e. you… but here are some names to inspire you

    Plumber’s Visit
    Fran does MPH
    or really just simply “The Wad”

    is stulu still reading this blog? take it from here buddy

      Thanks Sakar,

      It’s a proud day for MPH.

      Everyday, we’re able to see the referrals we get from different links and search terms (true story: someone throws Ivy’s name into a search engine on a regular basis and ends-up at our site). We broke new ground yesterday with the…adult-themed site referral. It’s a whole new level of weirdness. And, you’re right—we should celebrate.

        I don’t understand how that works, but very interesting. . .

    In other news… I know it’s not LuLu Lemon but today’s groupon is for Pacers. In case anyone is in the market for some new WOD apparel. The store is supposed on 14 & P.

    StuLu, if you are still reading the blog I hope you aren’t insulted.
