It has been a busy time around here the past month, and particularly the past week. Every year we put on Missouri's Strongest Man: The Gus Lohman Memorial Challenge. It is a benefit for Camp Quality, a camp for kids who have been diagnosed with cancer. It was our ninth one we’ve done. On Monday, we went out and did a strongman show for Camp quality. This was our third year doing that, and this was the biggest one yet. They had us on as the headliners for the night, with everyone in the camp in attendance. We did strongman lifts such as stone lifting, log and axle pressing, circus dumbbell, and truck tire deadlift. We also performed feats such as phonebook ripping, deck of card tearing, frying pan rolling and bar bending. Here is a video of me breaking blocks with my head: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yN3lOXOdwxo
The rest of the week was devoted to getting ready for "the Gus". This year it was held in conjunction with Belton Community Days, which offered us the opportunity to improve the show, but also offered a whole new slew of challenges. In the end it went off without a hitch. The results are as follows:
In the end, Camp Quality will once again be the biggest winner from this event. We raised $6,100 for the camp. A huge thanks to all of our sponsors, especially Metabolic Technologies (developers of HMB) and Optimum Nutrition. These two companies have really committed to this show the past few years, and without their help, it would not be the success it has become.
I will finally be going in for surgery next month for my elbow. The bad news is they will not be able to just scope it like I had hoped. The good news is that by getting cut I should make closer to a full recovery. Wish me luck!
