"UGA football players give Gym Dogs their props", from the Atlanta Journal Constitution:

http://www.ajc.com/sports/content/sports/uga/stories/2008/03/28/secgym_0329.html

An article about the "Challenge of the Champions", where the UGA Football and Gymnastics teams have a weight room competition to see who is stronger. Who do you think wins? Well the gymnasts of course!!! Well, ok, they say the football players are actually stronger based on how much weight they can lift and stuff, but pound for pound the gymnasts were stronger and won all the body-weight competitions like handstand contests and pullups.

Nice pic of Courtney Kupets in the article too :).

Haha, Rose knows my mile time is not to be messed with :D. She does pretty good at track tho for not practicing at all!

We should start a chalkbucket fitness challenge, haha!

Once school's over, that actually sounds like a pretty cool idea. I'll be training for my marathon, so by the end of summer, I'll be able to whoop pretty much everyone! LOL
