"ROWED KILL" 500 meter sprint challenge for HIGA

I set up a gym challenge at my work for the month of June.  Row 500 meters in the fastest time possible.  I will give the following prizes to the top male & female winners: a shirt of their choice from Bulky Boy and a can of Animal Pak.
My previous best in this challenge was 1:35.4 so I was pretty happy to pull 1:29.4

Today is the last day of the Rowed Kill challenge.  I am proud of everyone at my work who has participated so far!

HIGA sets a new record at the Samurai Noodle "Big Eater Contest" 2012 (Seattle, WA)

I was able to win a $200 gift certificate & broke my previous record with 10 balls of noodles.

The contest was held at the Capitol Hill location.

My daughters & neighbor watched this guy make the fresh Ramen noodles.

The noodle maker stays Bulky by making fresh noodles everyday!

This location had a HUGE sake selection!  I need to come here more often!

These skateboards were created only with spraypaint & stencils!  Pretty cool.

You have to try their fresh homemade Mochi!  Its good stuff brah!

"Ho brah, dis buggah is HOT!!"

My wife Michelle was drinking Sapporo while I was suffering stomach bloat.  WTF?

The 10th ball of noodles from frickin BRUTAL...I am not happy in this pic.

The top 3.  This girl ate 7 balls!  Her Dad got 3rd place.

BOOM.  King of noodles for a year.

A big "mahalo" to Samurai Noodle for putting on this contest and for our prizes!  Man, this is so tough!  I don't know if I will do it again because I was dry heaving for the next 2 hours after.
