Let me introduce myself. My name is Mark Sisson. I’m 63 years young. I live and work in Malibu, California. In a past life I was a professional marathoner and triathlete. Now my life goal is to help 100 million people get healthy. I started this blog in 2006 to empower people to take full responsibility for their own health and enjoyment of life by investigating, discussing, and critically rethinking everything we’ve assumed to be true about health and wellness...Tell Me More
Early last month I had the pleasure to interview John Post of team Gypsies. He and two other Primal dudes were dominating the ABC reality adventure show Expedition Impossible. Well, as many of you may know, the show is coming to an end… tonight! Here a few words from Eric Bach (the other brown headed, mustachioed, purple wearing, gypsy dude). Tune in, donate, vote and Grok on!
Well, today is the day; the final test of three men with mustaches. Tonight at 9pm on ABC, you can watch the final chapter of Expedition Impossible unfold. There are still 4 teams left and despite our 8 victories going into this stage it is still anyone’s game. Make sure that you tune in, throw on some purple, and sip on some fine cognac (although not necessarily Primal, we say screw it…get your lips wet).
Being on a reality show is an interesting experience. Before we knew what we had signed up for, we were galloping on Arabian stallions through the desert, drinking tea with Berbers and making some of the best friends a man could ask for. In celebration of this, we will be teaming up with our bros, Colorado’s own, “Team No Limits” for a raging party in Boulder (tickets are all ready sold out and we’re planning on having almost 800 people!). All of the donations from the event will be going straight to Erik’s non-profit, No Barriers and The Modern Gypsies’ partner, Free the Children. If you can’t make it to the event, please donate here.
The other weird thing about competing on a reality show is that you acquire fans. At first, we weren’t sure what to think of this, but we quickly embraced it. It is an amazing feeling to hear the stories of individuals and their inspirations. This is particularly prevalent in the CrossFit, Primal, and Paleo communities. These communities are filled with the people that inspire us and we are proud to call them family. We wanted to give our sincerest thank you to Mark’s Daily Apple and the Primal community. Your support and compassion has been overwhelming and we continue to cherish every moment. You guys Grok our world!
The Expedition is coming to an end, but the Gypsies’ adventures have just begun. Make sure to VOTE on our next “compassionate adventure” here and spread the love: The Modern Gypsies Projects
