I would like to take this opportunity to make the first official retraction in Outlaw Way history.
On Friday night I made a post that referred to the country of Iceland as not very exciting. At the time of that post I was jet-lagged, tired, and experienced nothing of the country but pitch black skies and a wind chill factor of -1,000,000 °C. This, coupled with the fact that I’m normally cranky, made me cranky. Throughout the weekend my opinion of the country was swayed by three facts: 1) Every single person in this country can Snatch a barbell. 2) Apparently they have an energy source known as “the sun”, and apparently when this energy source is on display, the city of Reykjavik is quite beautiful. 3) They laughed at my jokes.
I am, therefore, completely retracting my statement that Iceland is in any way not exciting. It is, in fact, a wondrously rugged and interesting place, which features a language that, when spoken, sounds like a combination between a dying yak and a lawnmower running over a tree stump. Every man (and woman) in this country carries a crossbow, and I am almost positive Colm and I helped overthrow the government last night—we don’t really know, they don’t exactly have “police”. Hell, I may actually be the new mayor of the whole country, who knows.
Seriously, thanks to Elvar and everyone at CrossFit Stodin. As I said when we finished, this trip was an absolute dream come true. We are truly grateful for the opportunity to visit a dream destination, and loved every second of the experience.
