I did something else athletic (x2)

Hot on the heels of taking part in the 5k run/walk at the Blue Nose Marathon ...

Amanda and I joined the company baseball team. The Rogers Rebels opened the media league's slob-ball season with a valiant effort in a 24-2 loss versus Team XXXtreme, then lost 17-3 against CTV. What the hell -- it's our first season as a team. I'm proud to say I actually hit the ball once. Someone caught it, but it's still a victory in my eyes. Baseball runs Sunday mornings at 9am in Dartmouth. Yes, that is early.

Then on Monday I had my first belt test at taekwondo. I passed! I'm now a yellow stripe. I had to demonstrate three kinds of kicks, two kinds of punches, two blocks, count to ten in Korean, and do some other stuff. Aside from the medal I got for simply finishing the run/walk, this is the first athletic honour I've earned.

And for those who've been waiting on the video to accompany my X-Weighted tribute series, Big Ass Superstar: Un-Weighted, the wait shouldn't be much longer. I have a draft edit finished, and I'm waiting on some outside work on the before/after photos so I can do a proper version of the dramatic morph at the end. I really wish I'd shot more footage throughout the process, as the show really boils down to me being fat and measured, me walking a few places, and me morphing. Ah well, it was a neat idea.
