***EDIT: Michelle, Sorry! I looked everywhere for those flakies last night at home and couldnt find them sorry!****
Sorry, no nail stuff to show you today. Instead I thought I'd share alittle about where I'll be the next 4 days.
Rob and I will be hitting the road tomorrow morning at 6:15a.m. and heading up to Columbus Ohio.
What's in Columbus you may ask?
Yes, THAT Arnold.
We will be attending the 2010 Arnold Sport Festival and Expo, just like we have for the past 5 years.
Click HERE if you wanna check out the website.
We go mainly to watch Strongman and Powerlifting, but really, there is something for everyone, from Archery, to Table Tennis, Arm Wrestling, Martial Arts, Ball Room Dancing, Figure and Fitness, and of course Bodyduilding!
Our favorite part was always watching the WPO powerlifting. Sadly the "chairmen" of the WPO and Arnold's right hand man had a bit of a disagreement, and they are no longer the powerlifting organization that competes at the Arnold. No one knows for sure but the word on the street has it that Jim (Arnold's right hand man) wanted the WPO competitors to be drug tested(for steroids). WPO's guy said, sure, but if you test us, I think it's only fair you test the BodyBuilders. And Jim said No! So yeah. For the record I dont give a rats butt if someone takes steroids. Steroids only make the body recover quicker therefore allowing someone to lift WAY more frequently and therefore put on WAY more muscle. It's not some miracle you can take and eat crappy food and sit on the couch and look like a beast, you still gotta work and work hard!
I hate that the media has made it out to be something it's not.
:::stepping off soap box:::::
Ahem, ok, where were we....
I miss the WPO! Watching guys benchpress over a thousand pounds and squat 1220pounds!
Oh well, we still have a blast!
You know what I think is the coolest little tidbit of all?
The Arnold has more athletes in attendance than any sports gathering in the world!
The number of athletes at the 2010 Winter Olympics? Around 2,700
The number of athletes at the Arnold? Over 17,000!
Astounding isn't it?
I'll be doing a mani once we get there tomorrow night and posting it either then or Friday sometime!
And I'll take LOTS of pics and share next week! Maybe this year I'll have my camera with me when Arnold makes his walk through, so I can actually get a pic of him!
And just so I'm not posting with no pics, how about I leave you with a GUN SHOW!
Rob's big sexy arm!
My wimpier one!
Hope you all have a fantastic rest of the week and weekend!
