We’ve just returned from a trip to Manhattan NY where I competed in my debut Pro Men’s Physique Contest! It was a short and busy trip, and there was stiff competition so I’m very happy to share that I placed 2nd! I was the only vegan competitor to my knowledge out of 108 athletes, so it was fun to #Represent! Check out these pictures from prejudging, the awards and backstage. If you happened to read my earlier post on preparing for this contest, I’ve spent the last year or more dealing with multiple injuries that have made normal, intense training impossible. I’m very happy to say that in addition to working around everything to prepare for this contest, I was also able to successfully rehabilitate myself back near 100%! I’m now starting my reverse diet and moving into my off season as we prepare for DC Vegfest next weekend (come see us at our booth!) and our DAUGHTER TO BE BORN in November! It’s been a busy Fall so far!
