chattanooga / competition

This weekend I went to Chattanooga for a climbing competition.


On Friday I headed out to Chatty with my friends Ian and Marcus and my dad. We went to my brother's boarding school and picked him up too --- for dinner.

We went to the local health food store where I got a couple HUUUUUGE grapefruits, some pecans that were still in their shell, and some macadamia nuts (I only get them when I go to chatty and when I really want them. I am careful that I eat 80/10/10 though, eating maybe only 5 as a snack, very slow as we would in nature)

Anyways, then we went to Mellow Mushroom and waited for a while. When I was waiting, I sat on the sidewalk and pealed/ate a grapefruit. I looked like a homeless bum, eating fruit while sitting down on a chattanooga sidewalk downtown. kinda funny.

Finally the table was ready and while everyone ate pizza, I ate the other grapefruit. Our waitress was pretty cool. She told me that there were a LOT of vegans who work there. COOL!!! When I was a cooked vegan, I remember going there and they were SUPER psyched on making me a vegan pizza. They are nice.


After a delicious mono-meal breakfast of clementines and a mid-morning snack of 4 bananas, i headed over to the climbing gym for the climbing competion. I competed in advanced, which was v7-v9. It was a HARD comp - the climbs were really powerful, yet VERY fun. I loved every minute of it.

Boys and girls were combined in the categories... so I was competing with the strong guys!!! I got 3rd place, which I was okay with since it was a mixed category.

I tried my best and had a ton of fun.

How was YOUR weekend?!

3rd!! That's pretty good it sounds for the condensed mens/womens advanced comp. Hope this pushes your ranking up a few notches for the season. Is there one more TC event in early Dec. or are they done next month? Way to go Ash'!
