    Official NYC WBB Meet.

    TwiloMike and myself would like to see who would be interested in coming to NYC for a little WBB themed get together sometime towards the middle/end of may. We would be doing this on a Saturday. The idea would be to get some lunch in the city and then hit up one of the NYC gyms for a few bucks a person and train together. We just wanted to see who would come out and hang out for a day. Anyone from WBB is welcome. We don't expect people to travel very far, more of an "if your in the area" type thing.

    Yup. Paul and I would like to see if this generates any interest.

    Obviously, Paul and I are in. If anyone has preferences for which late May weekend is better for them, speak up.

    I like NYC, after adjusting for the weather and the lack of sweet tea.


    However, as a phd student, I won't get nearly the amount of FF miles (or salary) as I did back when I had a real job. If I go to Boston to visit my brother in May, though, maybe we'll drive out.

    NYC isn't big enough to fit you. Plus you'll make us look small. Stay in the south!

    That's be awesome. Whereabouts are you working on your PhD? What is this sweet tea you speak of and what makes you think we don't have it in NYC?

    Hehehe... lime green chucks, eh? I'd like to see you work out in those.

    Man, this brings back memories of the Arnold where I looked like a lamp post following the crew around.

    I can promise you one of those, but I'm not spending any money. So there.

    I will only come if we have a mandatory WBB posedown.

    If RBB comes, he is not allowed to participate in said posedown.

    I would go if not for several reasons:

    1) I don't really know any of you, and none of you know me.
    B) The W in WBB is what most applies to me.
    iii) I might not be back in the city from school by then.


    Number 1 holds the most weight, though. Maybe I'll change my mind, but as of right now, it's a no-go.

    Hmmm... if #1 worries you the most, then don't worry! None of us know each other in real life. Well... that's not totally true. I know Unholy because I met him at the Arnold. But before that I didn't know him, and he turned out to be a swell guy. We're really really nice. We won't kidnap you and sell you as a sex slave to Indonesia... promise!

    I'm right in Bayonne NJ so I'm a 20 minute busride form the 99S to the city if I don't take the subway. I'd come along. Kinda sucks cause being a EMT made my training and diet lack.










    I don't look like that anymore lol. Almost makes me sad. Damn Ultimate Diet 2.0 .
