And all through the land

Going Off Course - Are we what we eat? If so, what about bulimics? What are they?
Minneapolis triathlete / Engineer / former bathroom cleaner / head-shaver Chris Hawes sent us the photo of some stuff he likes to eat (photo L). If he is what he eats, what does that make him?

Being a good father and true friend are what Scott strives to be every day of his life. If you know this special guy, you know that he has world class credentials in both areas.
It's unlikely that you'll ever meet a better man than Scott Penticoff....
