It is sooooooooo on.
I talked to Mark a couple of days ago about my CALORIE CONTEST idea. He agreed to humor me and participate.
Here is the deal:
Everyone ALWAYS asks how much Mark eats (Thanks to a 2008 Michael Phelps interview during which he claimed to eat 10,000 calories a day)
I don't really even know how many calories Mark eats a day
We have a closet full of cool stuff (gear, apparel, and awesome souvenirs from our crazy travels) just begging to be loved by someone
Friday (October 22, 2010) Mark will be keeping a food diary. He will write down everything he eats. He will be training three times that day (a morning pool workout, a weight workout mid morning, and an afternoon pool workout).
How many calories do you think Mark will eat on this typical training day?
Email your guess to email@example.com. We will select a winner the following Monday (October 25, 2010).
Prize? Well, after quick cleaning of the closet, Mark and I put together a little goodie bag that includes:
- An Olympic drawstring backpack
- A speedo ball cap
- An authentic Olympic plastic bracelet from Beijing (I bought it right outside of the Bird's Nest! Ahhhhh.... memories)
- A Samsung "official sponsor of the 2008 Olympics" polo shirt
- An autographed swim cap (Mark Gangloff... duh!)
