Here it goes again...

In case any of you have been following my blogging "career" regularly, you may be a little annoyed by now. This is my third attempt at managing a regular blog and I promise it'll be my last. My original blog, "Brad Culp Triathlon Chornicles", was a little too Disneylandish for my own taste and my second go around, "Brad Culp's Tri Travels", started with a bang (at least in my own head), but has since fizzled. Even though I feel like I travel a ton, traveling every other week doesn't create enough of a need for a travel blog. So this is it.

At the advice of some of my friends, I have created a blog dedicated to doing the extraordinary dumb. I have built a reputation around the Triathlete Magazine office for being a guinea pig of sorts, in that I'll try any absurd supplement or training plan that gets sent to us. If there's a new fad diet out there, you can bet your ass that I'll be the first to try it. Sometimes it's because I think it'll actually work, but most of the time I just want to demonstrate how ridiculous many of these "get in the best shape of your life" claims are.

So check back frequently to get the 4-1-1 on what not to do. And if for some strange reason some of this stuff actually works, I'll be the first to let you know. To start off, in the coming weeks, I'll be putting myself through the horrors of a cleanse diet, a low-carb program for serious athletes and a gut-wrenching homemade condensed-green tea energy drink. Enjoy!
