Happy 4th!

One of my first 4th of July’s I spent in NYC, I was thrilled and honored to be a part of the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest.

NO…not as a competitor, but as a cheerleader.  The man I cheered on, made me and the other girl wear khaki shorts and a gaudy American Flag inspired sequin vest.  I am sure there are pics of me in this outfit somewhere on the internet.  I just haven’t had time to find them and pull them up.

I’ve always wondered how people involved in competitive eating are often small and Asian.

There are many things I also wonder about competitive eating.  How does one train for such an event?  How do you not gain weight?  Maybe these are questions  I can answer myself by simply using google, but I’m too lazy right now.

Please have a happy and safe fourth.

Thanks.
