The Challengers – Week 17 – 21 June

Good evening!

For this past week’s challenge Andy and I took one of our mutually favourite fruits and eliminated it entirely for the week! That fruit… the avocado.

I had posted this image previously on my blog, but this also underlines some key reasons why we love this fruit and were sad to eliminate it from our diet…

Now ask yourself… who wouldn’t want to eat an ‘Alligator Pear’ ? The out come of this challenge is rather disappointing considering we both thought it be an EASY challenge.

Andy, having already lost 2 challenges was determined to show Jasmin up. It started out as an easy challenge given the out of sight and out of mind factor. If you don’t buy the fruit… chances are you won’t eat it. Right Andy? … Nope! Andy was hook winked again by a Thursday night dinner with friends where nachos and guacamole ruined his chances!

Jasmin, having been the winner the past two week felt confident but hungry for avocados all week! Being a fan of the bagel and avocado mix, she told herself to either buy a new fruit, or more fruit. This seemed to work, strawberries took the sweet, sweet spot of the avocado.


As a reward dinner, we prepared BBQ Chicken, stuffed with avocado and cheese, topped with bruschetta tomatoes and grilled vegetables. Along with a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc.

DinnerNext week’s challenge is inspired by a contest Jasmin saw on MapMyRun. What you do is create a route that forms an cool design, for example one of the entries from the contest below…

For Andy and Jasmin, we have to do a cool design just as ‘James D.’ from Austin did. There are no distance restrictions but we are going to do two runs, which means two maps; two cool map designs.
We need you readers to decide next week who has the best design! Come back next week and pick your favourite! Looser will donate $20 to the vacation fund; that will add to the $20 Andy donated last week.

Happy running!

A and J
