AWESOME! You have the approval of the Head Honcho! This is going to be EPIC!

And that made me laugh that Dawsy's 3mile record is "Faster"! :highly_amused:

Sweet, an epic battle. Thanks for linking to the AoM article - I may have to test myself against it sometime in June to see how I measure up to you manly fellas. Best of luck to both of you (and ever so slightly more to Loren - fellow Ranger and Lycan, after all - gotta support the home team)!

I can't cheer for either because the sheer force of epic manliness has caused me to swoon. I'm typing this in a catatonic state.

Looking forward for this!

The test is very similar to the Bar-Or tests we have at the IDF. Only the scoring is for pushup, situps and 2km run - and the score is 15 points for 86+ situps, 15 points for 75+ pushup and 70 points for 2km run under 6:48 minutes. Total 100, the score you need varies by where you are (or are headed). :)

I am the alpha and the omega. I am the bringer of balance. I am the God of my own creation.

When we meet in person some day, I am giving you the biggest, manliest hug for this.

AWESOME! You have the approval of the Head Honcho! This is going to be EPIC!

I know! My first Steve-bomb! Haha. Yeah. I didn't know his best so I'm like... crap, I know it's "Faster".

Looking forward to watching this. :)
Now THIS is a PvP Challenge.

Thank you!

I still suggest beard growth as part of the challenge. It could be deadlocked and the decider be the beard.

Normally I might, but this directly conflicts some of my goals. However, I always keep a thin beard as in my avatar.

Who the heck do I cheer for in this?! :o

Me, duh. The underdog. ;)

This is so awesome :D
Totally agree. It is impossible to cheer for one side. I am going to cheer for both!
Love this!
Awesome! I'll be cheering you both on!

Thanks all of you! :)

Lycan Rangers unite!

May the best mythical humanoid win!

Agreed.

I appreciate the support, brithday-bro.

Awesome - good luck to you both!

Thanks man!

I LOLed so hard at this.

OK so I discovered this morning that isometric ab exercises basically don't prepare you at all for timed abdominal crunches...this is going to be interesting.

Definitely.

3mi run: faster.

LOL.

Hehehe.

Interesting! Thanks for sharing and thanks for the support. :)

This is so fun!!! Like watching a couple Knights battle it out! Good Luck Gentlemen!!!

Thanks! :D

I'm in with the beards suggestion. If in some way possible it becomes known that you're tied for points... most manly beard or mustachio should be the tie break.

._. I will one day compete in a similar challenge of manliness.

But overall, this is good. Not just PvP, but set to inspire Guild v Guild!

I'm with you on that one, It'd be interesting to compete against a fellow Rebel to see who's the Mightiest!
