Pull UP Challenge Update – J-Poucher Takes Early Lead

JUST A FEW WEEKS AGO I may have set myself up to be laughed at by a whole bunch of you, but what the hell, we all need a laugh sometimes right?

For anyone who’s brand new here, we are in the middle of the 2nd Annual Colitis Folks Pull Up Challenge, and there’s a chance that a whole bunch of us are going to get our butts kicked pretty hard.  But I’m still hoping that Johnny Drama, Trent, Ben or Mylene are going to pull through hardcore and scare the crap out of our freak show-trash talking-j-pouch wearing boy Blake.

Now let’s take a moment and check Blake out just a little bit closer.  First off, he doesn’t have a colon anymore.  BUT, a year ago he did have one.  That’s right, Blake is a dude who was all jacked up with severe UC symptoms like a whole bunch of UC’ers and he went through with having several surgeries and an eventual j-pouch (which is the 2012 version of a remodeled colon).  And if you are one of those thinking that there’s no life post surgery, well, I got some news for you….YOU BE WRONG AMIGOS.  (Of course I definitely think Blake is cheating since he doesn’t need to pull up a colon like the rest of us, but we’ll have to let that slide I guess…)

We’re still waiting for some others to post up some videos, and there is going to be a prize for the winner, courtesy of the good folks who support the iHaveUC site, and so far, I’m not sure if I’ll be buying myself any presents this year…

Here’s a couple videos from Blake busting out some serious Pull Ups, and a one below of me trying to get a workout on mid-day in SF (in my usual workout gear…)

Take care everyone, and if you have any pullup tips, hook a UC’er up,

    Haha! Didn’t expect to see a post about pull ups yet. Looks to me like Adam is doing some heavy pull up recruiting. There’s gotta be some 135 pounders that can get a crazy amount of pull ups on this site.

    Yes Johnnydrama, I heard about Hulk’s sex tape a little while ago. Kind of dissapointed in the Hulkster, maybe he’s not such a good role model, but I do love that shirt.

    It is nice to not have the extra weight of a colon dragging me down. Problem is, I’m gaining weight like a Sumo wrestler now that I have the J Pouch. Not that it’s a bad thing, but I have been eating like a bear getting ready for winter… and that’s sure doesn’t make pull ups any easier. This is a good problem to have as all you UCer’s probably know.

    Yeah, those colons weigh ALOT, and Blake doesn’t have one…he probably knew that advantage going in…he suckered you, Adam!!
