Bench Press Champion
In case you were wondering how Kevin did in the Flying Pig Pump 'n Run 5k, here are the results:
He received a 30 second deduction in his 5k run time for every rep of bench press. Only catch, he had to bench press his body weight. Somehow, he weighed in at 160 pounds on Friday before the run. He was able to hit 12 reps at his body weight. That's pretty cool, if you ask me. He received a medal for exceeding 10 reps. As for his 5k time, his run time was 32 minutes, but with the 6 minute deduction for the bench presses, his official time was 26 minutes. It's a pretty neat race that incorporates your body strength as well as your overall aerobic fitness.
Rumor has it that he will appear on a box of Wheaties! (Thanks for the inside scoop, G!)
